Since 2005, Partners India has brought the love and compassion of Christ to the most vulnerable and hopeless.

A message from the Founders:

In the midst of rising challenges, HOPE is transforming communities, and these are exciting times. Decades of hard work and selfless sacrifice by India’s indigenous leaders are beginning to yield results.

India is estimated to become the world’s most populous nation by 2022. By 2025, 48% of the population will be under the age of twenty-five, and 80% will be growing up in the most remote, rural villages with little access to education and life skills. With this critical timing in mind, we are responding to those who are in urgent need and desperate for HOPE.

“India's ability to seize the opportunities available to our young population will depend on the success of its efforts to address the key challenges plaguing Indian education and vocational training. If we succeed, we ensure the prosperity of our own people and become the workhorse of the world, as other countries' ageing populations turn to us for the provision of goods and services. If we fail, our demographic dividend risks become a demographic disaster, since unemployed, frustrated and unemployable young men become prey to the blandishments of extremists and fanatics, as we have already seen in a number of insurgencies, particularly in our educationally under-served tribal areas.” - Dr. Shashi Tharoor – Member of Parliament/ Former UN Under Secretary

Since 2005, Partners India has brought the love and compassion of Christ to the most vulnerable and hopeless, by developing indigenous leaders, supporting communities of faith, and serving the poor and needy. We bring the hope of Jesus Christ in a culturally relevant way, without compromising its central message. As a result, lives are being transformed!

Friends, God is at work! Will you allow Him to use your life to transform the lives of the hopeless and destitute today?

Partnering together,
Ashish & Suvarnamala Pushkaran
