Community Development

We believe that as the salt of the earth [Matthew 5:13], we are responsible to positively transform our communities.

We do this through various programs:

  • Adult literacy classes
  • AIDS awareness programs
  • Free schools for village children
  • Endowments of agricultural tools
  • Mother/child educational programs to reduce infant mortality
  • Medical camps
  • Raising up abandoned children
  • Leadership training
  • Discipleship
  • Literature
  • Developing indigenous church planters
  • Educating tribal children
  • Leading community development work
  • Providing emergency relief
  • Rehabilitation outreaches
  • …and more

IET’s workers are reaching out to India’s 300 million Dalits (formerly called “Untouchables”), through evangelism, discipleship, training, vocational training, education and much more.
