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 the 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.
We are going back to help with various projects the CPT are involved in The building work will centre on putting the finishing touches on 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 has 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! Want to know more about the future build teams?

The slum kids; a current fundraising campaign to help support those at India, born into poverty, with virtually no chance at all of ever getting out of poverty without help. They live in whatever they found at the local dump, building their homes from raw materials, then selling whatever they can to buy food. As you can see from the photos, these are little angels, despite their circumstances, still smiling. If you would like to help feed, cloth, accommodate & educate them so their families can get out of poverty, please get in contact and/or donate below. We can also give you various updates on how they are doing if you start supporting the slum kids at India;
