These small sponsorships make a very big difference in the lives of individuals. As a sponsor you are starting a new success story, which would not be possible without you! Your regular giving means that socially disadvantaged people can receive the same chances as others. In this way they can experience God‘s love in a very practical and personal way.
Agape Ministries is the new sponsorship programme of CIfI. When you take on a sponsorship, you support the various projects run by our partner churches in India. And what is it about?
All information here:
Please fill in the enclosed sponsorship coupon and return to us (signed in the case of direct debit).
Taking on a sponsorship is easy and it can be cancelled at any time. You decide whether you wish to pay by monthly bank transfer, or whether we can take the money from your account by direct debit (the cheaper option). In each case you will receive a confirmation of your donation and the purpose.
We will keep you informed. You will receive our India Newsletter four times a year, with details of the various CIfI projects. As a sponsor you will also receive the biannual sponsor’s newsletter with current news regarding our sponsorships. (For security reasons these newsletters will be sent by letter post.)
Regrettably, it is not possible to have any personal contact to a child sponsored either by letter, or to send presents and invitations. Research has shown that this kind of preference of individual children does not do them any good. Interested parties however, do have the possibility to visit one of our churches – provided they are culturally well-prepared – as part of the short-term mission outreach trips scheme (info: ).
We do not arrange adoptions, but instead we help the children to grow up within their own culture. We support them in carrying out their vocational training and beyond, so that as people who value life, they will have the chance to co-form their society.
Cultural training for Germany and abroad, mission school and preparation weeks, outreach to Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Nepal), internships and Profilers programme, open seminars around church and mission as well as prayer are the offers of the CIfI centre. There are also public appointments and open prayer meetings.
On request, ourstaff is happy to visit Christian churches to organise services and events, to preach or report. There is also the option of qualified cultural training in churches.
The CIFI SHOP offers you our own designs on cool outfits. And beautiful things from India - our heartland.
