Hope in Action Tour

March 24, 2014

BRAMPTON, Ontario—Twice each year Partners International Canada brings its dynamic ministry leaders from around the world to share advances in their work overseas. These leaders possess outstanding vision and are on the leading edge of holistic international development. Fueled by incredible passion for showing the love of God in their unique contexts of ministry, they help to restore lives and transform communities.

“We’re excited to invite Canadians to meet these dynamic leaders personally and hear their motivating stories of faith, restoration and hope firsthand. We are so tremendously blessed to have such amazing partners,” said Brent Mitchell, President of Partners International Canada.Partners International Canada 50th Logo

Our first visitor this spring is the Director of the Mahima Aftercare Home in Kolkata, India, Smita Singh.  Partners International Canada works with Smita to help rehabilitate and reintegrate minor girls who have been rescued from the sex trade. Some are as young as 8 years old. Smita uses a holistic approach to provide healing, rehabilitation and reintegration into the community. The home also focuses on preventing re-trafficking and bringing the perpetrators to justice.

Smita will be travelling throughout Ontario until April 7th and is available to speak at your event or meet with you personally while on tour.
