Established in 2004, the community centre run by Bi'r Myah is focused on an urban population of four million Muslims in central India. The vision is to see the poor realize their God-given potential and to improve their living condition through sustainable transformational development in the areas of health, education, economic development, and spiritual blessing.
The community centre offers subsidized medical care and health education including community seminars on childcare and hygiene, as well as medical camps that provide much-needed diagnosis and treatment of basic health problems.
Vocational training courses on cooking, tailoring, computers, jam making, book binding, candle making, and sari making are made available to women, helping them develop income-generating skills. Programs for children include tutoring and special extra-curricular activities.
Long-term relationships are formed with beneficiaries through a well-planned follow-up program of literature distribution and personal visits from staff. Spiritual formation programmes provide access to a trained counsellor for women and youth suffering from depression or needing guidance in spiritual and family problems.
Because the centre is run by women, Muslim ladies who would not ordinarily be allowed to participate in these activities can come in contact with a Christian witness for the first time. On average, 3,600 women and girls receive training each year. Gifts to this project will help cover operating costs such as rent, utilities, salaries, and food and supplies for the women.
Your gifts will enable this vital ministry to continue offering help to the community.
