South Asia is the birthplace of Interserve. In the past 2 centuries, God has continuously impressed a passion for the needs of people in this part of the world upon an organisation that is now known as Interserve.
Parts of this region are experiencing a booming middle class with all the demands that such a boom creates, while other parts are home to some of the world’s poorest societies. Access to services and resources are a consistent challenge here, which is compounded by social and political barriers. Yet there are the fingerprints of God across these lands. Some of the oldest Christian communities worship here and some of the youngest emerging Christian communities are being formed here.
Interserve workers serving in South Asia include:
- Church ministries, including theological training
- Educators for expatriate children, local schools and universities
- Partnering with other organisations to increase effective student work
- Teachers of English as a foreign language
- Medical and dental educators and practitioners
- Nursing educators and practitioners
- Community development workers
