What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

India has the highest concentration of unreached people groups in the world. Over 1 billion unreached have never held a bible. Less than 8% are Christ followers. There are over 4,000 distinct people groups. Over 1,500 languages are spoken. Nearly 80% of Indians practice Hinduism. Another 12% of Indians practice Islam. Half of the world's orphans (approximately 26 million). India leads the world in human trafficking (child labor & commercial sex workers) as well as HIV, tuberculosis, and leprosy.

We do one thing - advance the gospel in India. We do it in one way - through the local church. We facilitate the service of hundreds of short-term missionaries to serve in India. We are constantly calling people to PRAY for India, GIVE to God's work in India, and GO to India. We find that going is the greatest catalyst for getting people to pray and give.

We enable local churches to be solution providers in needy villages through clean water, agriculture, and livestock projects. GHI teams provide medical and dental clinics, as well as distribute thousands of hygiene kits every year. Your support for Clean Water Projects – allows us to empower local churches with clean water projects. One clean water project cost $4,000 and provides a bore well, submersible pump, overhead tank, and 6 gravity taps. It provides clean drinking water to over 2,000 thirsty villagers.

Population(s) Served
Indigenous peoples
Economically disadvantaged people

By training and equipping the pastors in micro business development, Global Hope India is empowering them to stand on their own 2 feet. When they launch a business it engages their whole family in income generation. They are able to sustain their family as well as fund the development of their ministry. This broadens their witness in the community which makes their evangelism even more effective. As successful business owners they are then able to train their entire church family in economic development. This elevates the report of the church in the village.

Jesus is on a mission! How about you? In John 4:35 Jesus said, “Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” We train 100+ short-term missionaries per year to go serve The Church in India for the advancement of the Gospel.

Population(s) Served
Christians
Adults

We facilitate child & orphan home sponsorship programs. GHI teams provide child evangelism programs and minister to kids rescued from human trafficking. We help construct orphan homes, dining halls, class rooms, bunkbeds, Christmas gifts, and college tuition to improve the lives of orphans.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

We empower the Church in India to train new pastors that will start new churches. We provide bible literacy training as well as vocational skills training. We empower every pastor trained to stand on their own two feet financially. This produced healthy pastors that lead healthy churches. History proves the starting of new churches is the most effective means of evangelism.

GHI facilitates mission teams that empower the church in India for the advancement of the gospel using effective leadership, village, and child development programs.

Leader Development: We empower our Indian partners to train church-planting pastors. We train pastors in micro business development for income generation so that they can sustain their families and churches.

Village Development: We enable local churches to be solution providers in needy villages through clean water, agriculture, and livestock projects. GHI teams provide medical and dental clinics, as well as distribute thousands of hygiene kits every year.

Child Development: We facilitate child & orphan home sponsorship programs. GHI teams provide child evangelism programs and minister to kids rescued from human trafficking. We help construct orphan homes, dining halls, class rooms, bunkbeds, Christmas gifts, and college tuition to improve the lives of orphans.

We have 20 years of experience in India. We have facilitated more than 800 individuals going to India to fulfill our mission and have raised more than $5.5M for God's work in India. 85% of every dollar raised directly benefits programs in India.

Our Indian partners are long-term partners with proven effectiveness in church planting in India. They are vetted and experienced. We maintain direct relationships with our church planters. They provide credible information and regular updates. Our partnerships provide representation across all of India and opportunities for multiple yet diverse trips.

We have facilitated more than 1,000 individuals going to India to fulfill our mission and have raised more than $5.5M for God's work in India. 85% of every dollar raised directly benefits programs in India.

In the coming year we plan to reach our goals listed above. In addition we plan to aggressively develop our project based fundraising. With 20 years of experience doing missions in India, we have developed a specific strategy to become the thought leader for missions in India.

We are on track to hire a Director of Development that will further develop our project based fund-raising.

We are gearing up to take more teams of volunteers to serve in India than ever before.
