New ministry brings hope to women prisoners in India

Rabbi and Chitra, co-mission partners in India with Faith2Share member Asia CMS, have started a new ministry, called Peacemakers, for women prisoners, their children and families. In India women prisoners are often neglected and are crying out for hope and transformation in their lives.

After more than a year’s preparation, staff, office and funding have been found and a great team is in place, committed to the work.

Rabbi and Chitra said: “We have two well-experienced professional social workers who have started some amazing work in the women’s prison. Both have previously been working in this field and their work is bearing fruit even in this short time. Continue to pray for our team.”

A training module for women prisoners in mental health recovery and personal empowerment is being developed and piloted. Rabbi and Chitra added: “Kindly uphold this work in your prayers that the women experience healing and restoration, and that this curriculum will be an empowering tool used across prisons in India in the years to come.”
