Sakhyam Gramam is a new project started as part of the 80th year celebrations of Mar Thoma Yuvajana Sakhyam. The project aims to engage more youths, who are dedicated and willing to set apart their life- tithe, into God’s work and create an empirical understanding of mission in villages. Along with the missionaries, our youth members also will be provided opportunity to learn and share their talents, time and life through this venture. We look for a group of remote villages which are backward financially, also in health-educational services. The fund for the project is raised from among the youths mainly. The process of buying a suitable land in the identified villages to start a mission house, school and health clinic is the current status of Sakhyam Gramam project.
