Please join us in praying for a fresh hope for girls in India.
"But the needy will not be ignored forever; the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed." (Psalm 9 v 18)
Many young girls in Bihar state in the north of India are pushed into marriage as young as twelve. With poor healthcare already a reality, the girls are then denied access to education and the means to train for work to support themselves. We are urgently working with The Duncan Hospital to address this problem and rescue girls from this modern slavery.
Give thanks for our "Lift a Girl" project to train girls as healthcare workers in India. As they realise their own potential, they will become role models for other girls living in their villages.
For the work of The Duncan Hospital as it provides essential healthcare to people who would otherwise have none.
That the cultural limitations placed on the life of girls will change for the better, allowing new opportunities to open up.
For each young woman who takes up the challenge of learning to be a healthcare worker, for strength, protection and guidance.
