Cross Roads for Human Development
Tuesday, February 11 @ 10:00 - 12:00
Rev Gill Evans will speak to us about the support work she does for CRHD, Cross Roads for Human Development, in Raichur, Karnataka State, India
Although India is considered to be one of the fastest developing countries, many rural Indians still struggle in abject poverty. The reality is that millions are still unemployed in modern-day India. This is generally due to a lack of education which empowers young people by developing their knowledge and skills. The purpose of CRHD is therefore to strive for a holistic approach towards human development for those who are politically oppressed, socially considered to be outcasts, the Dalit Caste, and economically exploited in various ways.
To help address this, CRHD opened schools for promoting Christian education for the Dalit children. Gill has visited the schools a number of times and will talk about the work that is being undertaken there.
