Over 100 years ago a hostel and school was established by missionaries at the current location of the Hope Center in India. The mission back then was to train and equip children. Over the course of many years the facilities became more and more run down and funding and funding eventually dried up. In late 2014, after the loss of a little boy named Mason who had a heart for the children of India, Hope Partners felt led to explore the possibilities of establishing a home and school for orphan children. After much prayer and multiple visits it was clear to both Hope Partners and the Church of North India (a large Christian denomination) that God was opening the door for a partnership with the focus of rescuing children and transforming their lives. In 2016, Hope Partners International and the Church of North India partnered on this initiative and began renovating the 7-acre compound and making it into a Hope Center, a place of rescue and transformation.
The school, called Hope Academy, currently educates more than 165 students and endeavors to equip them for lives of effective service. What was once the hostel is now a home for children called Mason’s Place. It is home today to 103 precious girls.
Although the work is difficult and the challenges are many, we are seeing God do amazing things in the children’s lives. The Hope Center has become a beacon of spiritual light in a dark and difficult area.
One of the most exciting ways to partner with the work at Mason’s Place is through sponsoring a child. For $79 a month you are able to cover all the educational expenses plus food, clothing, housing and medical care. As a sponsor you also have the great opportunity to be encouraged by monthly updates from your child and you will have the ability to send a message of encouragement and love. This is a great way for a family to connect and care for a child in desperate need.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with us at Mason’s Place and Hope Academy as we seek to rescue and transform the lives of abandoned, abused and marginalized children.
