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.
Vocation Training – Ambernath slums in outer Mumbai
The project involves offering tailoring and computer courses to the vulnerable, including women; teenage children; and youth living in Ambernath slums in outer Mumbai. These courses will provide skills and confidence to either get a job or start up their own business. This in turn will help support the family financially as well as socially and help them come out of poverty.
Vocation Training – Lasina village in far eastern Maharastra state.
The project will involve providing tailoring as well as computer courses to the marginalised, tribal and school dropout girls, women and youths living in the village of Lasina (village next to Gnyan Sampada Residential School). This will enable villagers to acquire skills and confidence to either get a job or start up their own business. This in turn will help support the family financially as well as socially and help them come out of poverty.
