Our team is based in two countries in South Asia, with the overwhelming majority of the citizen in this region identifying as Hindu or Muslim.
In one of these countries in particular, our team’s focus is serving women who have been, or are at risk of being, trapped in the sex trade. Many of our global workers are involved in freedom businesses, where they provide employment and support services to the formerly enslaved.
In another of the South Asian countries where we work, our team is largely involved in education. This means providing a high quality of education and resources, as well as a environment of integrity and honesty where children can thrive.
This region is home to nearly one and a half billion people.
44% of this region holds non-religious belief, while 13% would call themselves Buddhist. Around 8% identify as Christian.
Christians have always been in the minority in East Asia, where many have suffered hostility, persecution, and imprisonment for their faith. Incredibly the church has only grown during this time, as more people experience the freedom of and salvation of Jesus.
South East Asia
We are currently working with marginalised communities in South East Asia where social issues such as alcohol and drug abuse, and broken families are prominent.
In these communities, our team are often in the huge minority as believers of Jesus, but with a passion to have true community with their neighbours. 85% of the South East Asia region subscribes to the Buddhist belief system, meaning that those who look to Christianity are often accused of rejecting their families and their identity.
Our team is interested in introducing these people to Jesus, and allowing His love and providence to change lives.
These are our people.
They authentically partner with locals, learning from and teaching one another. They are our hands on the ground, deeply committed to the workplaces and communities they live in. They work to empower and equip people in a faith-based, sustainable and just way.
