OOver 30% of the people in India live below national poverty line. India has now over 1.2 billion people. So this 30% makes a large amount of people struggling to meet their basic needs. According to the international standards, over 68% lives with $2/day. Malnutrition among children, inhumane living conditions, lack of clean drinking water, widespread of Malaria, and social stigma are some of the humanitarian concerns in India.

Humanitarian Work are one of the three ways Wisdom For Asia fulfills its vision of Transforming individuals and communities. We are actively involved in improving lives through meeting physical needs. Our humanitarian efforts are designed to do the most good based on our financial capabilities; we seek the maximum return for each dollar spent. We believe that God has called us to not only share His Wisdom, but to also demonstrate His love through acts of compassion and charity.

In Matthew 10:42, Jesus said, “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”  Our Breakthrough Water Well Project is a huge blessings to thousands of people in various communities in India. Each water well provides clean and healthy water for minimum of 100 t0 over 2000 people for 15+ years. This project transforms a community and helps the women in each community very much.

James 1:27 says, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unstained from the world.” 

Currently, Wisdom For Asia is involved in the following Humanitarian efforts:

Safe drinking water is linked closely to the well-being of human life. In many Asian countries especially in India, the primary sources of drinking water, that include surface water and groundwater, are contaminated by different physical impurities, agricultural and industrial wastes, and underground chemicals and minerals. Water borne diseases are widespread, especially among the low income class of the society. It is a cause of growing concern that many Indians do not have access to safe drinking water. Wisdom For Asia has helped several communities in India to have their own water well that provides clean drinking water.READ MORE
Due to extreme poverty thousands of families in India cannot afford to send their children to school. Sending their children to school requires new clothes, shoes, and school supplies. It is even harder for the families with 3 or more children. Often parents think about the benefit of having one more pair of hands to help them in the farm and or around the house. This mentality prevents children to go to school and forever casts them into the cycle of poverty. Every year we get hundreds of requests from parents for financial support to send their children to school. We fulfill their requests based on the availability of the funds. You can sponsor a child with $20! READ MORE  
Through this program we find academically talented but financially poor students and help them to continue their education. Our goal is to send them to a private school where the teaching is primarily in English. We also ask the parents or guardians to be accountable for their education and allow WFA to be a partner in developing their children. $31/month helps a child to have quality education. READ MORE  
Over 230 million people go to bed hungry every day in India. Millions of children are forced to beg on the street and are often abused and mistreated. Many of these children could be sold into the sex industry. Wisdom For Asia helps feed thousands of people in India. We intentionally create a great atmosphere for them to come and enjoy our ministry as well as the food prepared for them. $2 provides delicious hot meal for a person.  READ MORE
