Aid International Development currently sends teams annually to Vijayawada India to work with our partner Calvary Prayer Tower (CPT) run by Pastor Juna Israel. Work usually centres around building or renovating a school or orphanage, with jobs as varied as painting, digging, stonework, glazing, roofing
and anything else that needs doing! Don’t worry if you have no building experience – we can work with anyone and there is always something for everyone to do.
In 2019 we are going back to help work on all the various projects the CPT are involved in The
building work will centre on putting the finishing touches to a new home for widows.
The Mission side of the work will be focused on the tens of thousands of slum dwellers in Vijayawada and surrounding villages who are stricken with poverty. They hunger for food, they thirst for clean water, they suffer from preventable diseases, their children die of malnutrition; a neat and tidy home is but a dream for them.
Amazingly CPT and Pastor Juna are involved in almost 20 projects ranging from feeding dump and slum children, helping the poor and widows, HIV and Aids and supporting a leprosy church to a computer Training Centre and a Sewing Project which have enabled vulnerable people to get jobs or run small businesses from home. There will be visits to these projects every day and team members will be encouraged to get involved with these visits and/or work on the building site as they see fit. In addition we will be involved in evangelistic outreach meetings most evenings.
So… come prepared to work hard!!
