The Organisations We Work Alongside

INDIA

Neerekshe Trust - INDIA

Personal friendships reach back thirty years with the Patriarch of this official Indian Charity. Twenty years ago a small crèche was started in his ancestral home, in the village of Muranpur, Karnataka and Neerekshe (Hope) was formed. Muranpur lies in a drought prone area and malnutrition, poor health and education were the primary needs.

Since that initial step in faith Neerekshe now has plot of land on which they have a school, a hostel for boys and girls, a Rural Industrial Training facility, a small primary care hospital, a Parish Centre, a ‘cottage garden’ and agricultural facilities. Neerekshe has reached out to many other surrounding villages but there is still a ‘Cowshed Church’ in the ancestral home in Muranpur, where the creche and Neerekshe started, although the cows are now permanently removed!!

The IAF has been involved in all of these projects to a greater or lesser degree and more information of this involvement can be found here...

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

ASDIG - DRC

In response to the ever-increasing numbers of victims of rape, Claudaline Mukanirwa, a then pastor’s wife in Goma, in the then diocese of Bukavu, DRC, formed Action Salutaire pour le Développment Intégral de Goma (ASDIG), a registered NGO, in 2006. This was funded from profits from her small tailoring business; the aim was to bring hope to rape victims by teaching them tailoring and dress making skills. Thus began Project ‘Hope’.

Later she began feeding many malnourished children – the product of the rape pandemic. In 2010 she started a school, ‘Tumaini’, for the poorest unschooled children. Later she started a separate agricultural initiative in Kalehe –‘Stand Up Women’. These projects are based in the area of Lake Kivu, in the eastern part of the DRC. More...

Members of IAF were supportive of the aims of the Indoneyin Trust as early as 2004 when an initial scoping trip was made to the village.
