Hosanna Ministries

Let’s Bring Change through Education

Hosanna Ministries was founded by Kiron Gaikwad to reach out to poor, ethnic minority rural people in far eastern Maharastra state, India.  It began with a children’s home called Ankoor, now Gnyan Sampada Residential School (GSRS). The home has added a school open to local children as well as boarders. The most recent initiative is vocational training on the west coast of Maharastra. Hosanna Ministries has expanded its work to provide a range of vocational training opportunities for youth.

Vocational Training

Hosanna Ministries has expanded its work to reach out-of-school youth in the Thane area of Western Maharashtra where there are high levels of poverty, unemployment and out-of-school youth.  A range of vocational training includes opportunities for both boys and girls, particularly those from minority and slum backgrounds. The training courses currently are in tailoring and computing. These skills are in demand and it is expected that those who complete the training will find employment.

Kiron and Nalini Gaikwad

We have founded, built and directed the work at Gnyan Sampada Residential School (formerly Ankoor) and lovingly parented its many residents. Nalini was orphaned herself, and was adopted by missionaries. This is a strong part of her motivation for the work.
