J751N ICMC (Christian Mission Centre) Development Project

India, Indian Subcontinent

The Situation

Indian Christian Mission Centre (ICMC) Development Project operates an educational and holistic care facility which assists children and widows in Salem District, Tamil Nadu.


This project takes care of ‘The Promised Land’, a complex of living units and school on 90 acres. It has a primary school, which started with 12 kids and has grown to provide holistic care for around 2,000 children.


Many children who become orphans are abandoned by parents, not due to lack of love, but through a lack of resources to care for their basic needs.


Additionally, the project aims to teach the community how to cultivate rice, corn, beans, bananas, coconuts and ground nuts. Through this agricultural development/education, job opportunities can be generated for the poor village youth and enable the beneficiaries to become self-sufficient – providing food security for the community.


The Objectives

-         This project aims to reduce the poverty in the tribal communities of this district, primarily through sustainable agricultural development

-         To improve the safety, wellbeing, education and future prospects for over children.

-         Provide high quality medical care and services to the surrounding community through the onsite Hospital.
