September 2020

Starting in 2017 Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church joined with nine other churches in a collaborative mission through Lutheran World Relief (LWR) to support the families of Bihar, India as they meet the challenges of providing for their families through farming, women led community banking groups, better nutrition and educational opportunities.

September 2020 is our last month of involvement and support for this global mission.  To date Saint Andrew’s has given $88,260 towards our commitment of $100,000. This effort has increased families’ farming success through crop and farming education, improved health with nutrition education, and empowered and strengthen communities through the women led self sufficiently banking groups.  Though COVID-19 has impacted the Bihar community LWR/PRADAN was able to continue the vital agriculture work of the project.
