On Site Information
Ministry History: There is no single issue that adversely affects all of India, nor is there a simple solution. As cities sprawl and land developers either take ancestral lands or deplete them of natural resources (including water), India’s rural poor migrate to the city in search of work. This creates large communities of need who struggle daily to meet basic necessities for food, education and healthcare. The India regional team has focused their efforts in the areas of primary education, maternal and infant healthcare, and job creation.
Location: The NCR (National Capital Region)
The National Capital Region (NCR) of India extends over 19 regions, with a combined population of 45 million people, including the major city of Delhi. For the India regional team, this is our area of concentration.
The NCR offers our team something unique to India—it provides a universal experience. People from all over the country come to the NCR, which affords us the opportunity to learn history, develop relationships, advance language learning, and familiarize ourselves with Indian culture. Unlike less cosmopolitan regions of India, the English language is commonly spoken by large numbers of nationals residing in the area and Western culture is more widely accepted.
Food, Travel, and Lodging: Teams will stay in Hostels (accommodations similar to Hotels) in the NCR.
Types of Ministry: SLAM groups will teach children in church and schools, offer preventative healthcare education, minister at a local orphanage, volunteer in local health clinics, and participate in social service work with widows. **
**SLAM will inform you of your service project specifics 2-3 weeks prior to your trip date.
