  • Anoka - Ministry to Children Living in the Slums

    Everyday, thousands move to Delhi with their families, with the hope of getting a better job and living. Many of them end up in slum areas struggling to make ends meet. The children are not sent to school because of the lack of proper documents of the parents or because the parents would rather have the children work and earn for the family.

    We started a project among the children called ‘Anokha’ the Hindi word for ‘unique’ or ‘special’ in a slum nearby DBI in Delhi. The children come to the Anokha centre to learn basic English, Maths and Hindi. The schedule each day at Anokha starts with wash up since the children do not bathe at home, then a devotion where they are taught about Jesus followed by classes. The children love to sing and enact the Bible lessons. Apart from studies and the Bible, children learn health and hygiene.
