A safe haven for the disadvantaged
One Way village, the center of our mission work in India, is located in Pottipadu Village in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The village was founded in association with Bethel Ministries, a local partner of ours.
One Way Mission has done mission work and helped disadvantaged people in India since the year 2000. In 2002 construction work began on a plot of ground purchased for the purpose of building a village. Today One Way Village has a children’s home, a refuge for widows, a center for the disabled as well as a missions house which functions as the center of mission teamwork and as a guest house. The village has a church of its own as well as a primary school.
Areas of ministry
The Rainbow children’s home is one of the first buildings of One Way Village in Pottipadu. It has room for 150 children.
Many of the first children taken into Rainbow have already finished their studies, grown up and begun their lives. In their place have come new children seeking safety and love.
Since 2011 One Way Mission also sponsores children in nearby located Wendel Nivas’ orphanage.
India is full of needy and distressed children and what is preventing us from helping them are our resources, the number of sponsors funding this work and the limited space in our homes.
Alongside the children’s homes, we run a primary school. Because education for older children in a government school proved to be ineffective, we have started a new tuition-based school capable of providing high-grade education for the children in our children’s homes as well as for others. BEST upper-level school has almost 400 students already, and their learning results have been very encouraging.
The children in our children’s homes are orphans, half-orphans or from such homes where the parents are not able to provide them with any future prospects. The whole children’s work relies on the support of Finnish sponsors.
The fee for sponsoring a child: 44€ / child / month
The tuition fee for upper-level education: 120€ / year
