Bethesda-Khankho Foundation is an organization for holistic transformation. We support and work with the disadvantaged tribal communities, particularly in state of Manipur in north-east India.
The organization is founded on the principle of sacrificial love locally expressed in the people's own altruistic tradition of Khankho.
We believe in the potential of the poor and marginalized people transforming their lives and the world and hence, our motto: 'Be transformed to transform.'
Our activities include:
(1) Bethesda Som-In. A secure Home for orphans and destitute children for leadership development providing food, shelter, clothing, education, spiritual and social development.
(2) Bethesda Academy - making quality and integral education accessible to all, particularly tribal children with a vision to prepare more educated, more inclusive, more tolerant and responsible global citizens.
(3) Training Programmes - equipping young people with skills for self-support.
(4) Indigenous Resources - providing online cultural, theological and devotional resources in the context of human struggle for dignity, meaning and peace.
(5) Leadership development - preparing leaders for the 21st century society by supporting young people for professional training in partnership with other organizations and providing consultancy services to those already in leadership positions.
