Faith In Action Ministries (FIAM) is a partner of CRED and a charity whose aim is to benefit ‘the whole person and the whole of society’. Working in the villages of the Andhra Pradesh region, the scope of their projects is breathtaking:
The India CRED Team Trip is an opportunity to work with two of the FIAM projects: St Joseph’s school in Nallajerla, near Rajahmundry. A key part of the trip will be delivering a five-day activity week providing fun, creative and educational lesson activities for all the children in the school.
India is a country of vast differences. There is much wealth and yet such extreme poverty. We have found, in our partner FIAM, a team of people who care about the poorest of the poor and want to see them given the best chances in life. The week itself is of significant benefit to those involved, informed as it is by child development theory, good teaching practice, and a spirit of fun and play. Local staff appreciate the input and new ideas, as well as the resources that are left behind, and any fundraising is given straight to the host project.
The trip will take place during October, to coincide with local school term dates, as this is also one of the best times to visit India weather-wise. Dates will be clarified upon application.
