As a friend of Covenant Child Development Centers, you know that life in India can be hard on families and villages that are impoverished. These villages not only lack educational opportunities that would help the children to learn their way out of poverty, but these villages lack the vision to see the future as something to be embraced.
The children of CCDC have families that are trying to overcome the despair that blankets these communities. They see a path out of poverty and want to pursue it.
This is where CCDC steps in.
Help from the local village church through CCDC makes all the difference between continuing the trend of families giving up on schooling at all too young of an age or providing encouragement and assistance to learn their way out of poverty.
Wouldn't it be great to partner with these families who see a path out of poverty for their children and simply need help to get there? CCDC's participating churches are the foundation for village renewal and family redemption, putting action to the words that are proclaimed on Sundays. Help from partners like you outside of India, gives the village churches through CCDC the support and resources to lift the blanket of despair! It's great to know that you actually CAN make a difference in someone's life!

With this she tries to support her family, but it’s never enough. She is torn; family burdens on one side and a drunken husband on the other. Keep Reading
