A Hall for Sano Diyo (little lighthouse) in India

Sano Diyo is home for 40 abandoned Nepali girls near Siliguri in India (there are 6 million Nepalese living in India). They need a hall next to their home to continue to develop their work.

It is intended that not only used for the girls but be income producing as well.

The suggested ways it might be used are:

Hope Presbyterian in Hornby, Christchurch are generously funding the bulk of the money for this build (cost $160,000) and International Needs, United States are funding all the furniture and fittings ($67,000)

We are anticipating to need to find $30,000 to complete the building over and above what Hope Presbyterian hope to raise.

Can you help us?

"We sincerely pray that God has a plan and a purpose. We believe, just like God had a plan for Sano Diyo. We sincerely believe that the time has come for us to move forward, extend our ministry beyond. Just like God has done amazing work with the children in Sano Diyo. We believe He will do more with the children of Siliguri and Darjeeling." Prasanna (pictured) and Arpana Khaling (Chief mum and Dad of Sano Diyo)
