to spiritual needs
Karuna exists to provide empowered dignified and sustained employment and income generation opportunity to remote and rural marginalized and under privilege people of Himalayas. Karuna is the Nepali word for Compassion. This part of our Reach Himalaya Ministries exists to provide those living in poverty in the remote villages to rise out of that life. By empowering the poor and those that have been in a life of slavery and sexual abuse with dignified and sustained employment opportunities our people will learn to feel they can support their families with pride.
This compassionate effort will continue to expand within the family as it becomes fully self-supporting. These people will become an avenue to reach out to others in their villages to enable them to prosper. This community effort will provide hope to many. The remote Himalayan regions have so many poor that can barely supply daily food for their families and are desperate for a “lift” in life to help them with a means to become self-supporting. We have been slowly working among our own people physically helping them and teaching them to build earthquake resistant shelters, learn sewing to start their own businesses and raise animals for their food and income but it takes time and finances.
Providing an income generation opportunity for remote and rural under privileged people of the Himalayas and to give a desperate chance to escape from poverty helping to empower women and young girls to come out of sex trafficking trade through the purchase of a sewing machine.
In Himalayas, Reach Himalaya Ministries has enabled Christians living in areas of great poverty to purchase cows, buffalo, and goats, provide milk to nourish growing children, and also pig and chickens offer hope for a better future and of greatest importance open doors of opportunity to share the gospel.
“Women in the Himalayas routinely suffer from lack of access to education, money and technology. Barely 25% of Nepali women are literate. They face systematic discrimination due to institutionalized chauvinism and a pronounced cultural preference for sons in Nepali society. .
We know the importance of teaching about providing sources and means of opportunity to help oneself and others. Without hope of an income source a life of poverty and dispair can ravage the mind and spirit of remote villagers. As prayers and thanksgiving sustain this Kingdom business.
