To involve everyone in constant prayer, regular giving and in some personal a commitment for tackling poverty in Ghana India.
Pray – on your own and in home groups

We have known Rev Emmanuel Boamah-Agyeleum in the town of Takoradi in Ghana for more than ten years. People from Shaftesbury visit the church there regularly and Emmanuel and his wife Monica have visited here.
Emmanuel as well as being a Pastor and Church leader has a wonderful ministry with his regular Television and radio programmes which reach out to many thousands of people.
Monica’s vision is for the pre-school, which offers godly, motherly care and a feeding programme for children up to 6 years; since September 2008 she has begun primary education from 6 years upwards and now has two classes. The pre-school has a dedicated building next to the Worship Centre.
We helped with the purchase of some land upon which they already have begun to build a Church, School and medical centre.
In Bangalore, southern India, we work with Pastor Singh and his wife, Eunice. We have helped in providing him with transport to enable him to visit church members, and also given into his ministry with the poor, orphans, widows and lepers.
Eunice Singh is the headmistress of the school which they started in their home. It has now expanded to more than 800 children, mainly from very poor families. There are stong links between our Sunday school and the children of Pastor Singh’s church.
We also have teams regularly visiting India taking the message of the Father Heart of God.
