The world became more familiar with the materially poor of Kolkata (Calcutta), India through the work of Mother Teresa. Life for the materially poor living in and around Kolkata is not easy. Yet, the people of West Bengal are extremely hard working and often only need access to opportunity to be able to provide for their families and avoid the risks of issues like human trafficking. There's lots to be done, as the majority of people on the outskirts of Kolkata live on $2 or less per day.

That's where CSS (Christian Service Society) comes in. CSS is an Indian Christian microfinance institution addressing the needs of Indian people. It has an Indian board with Indian management and staff. It extended an invitation to PEER Servants to partner with it in 2010, and the organizations have been working together to extend the kingdom of heaven to the outskirts of Kolkata ever since. Almost 20,000 active clients are currently receiving loans that have helped them start or grow small businesses and create jobs, but CSS would like to increase that to 30,000 within the next three years. The initial loan size is less than $50.

Please click on "Fundraise" to the right and join Team India to raise $5,000+ to create opportunities for the people of Kolkata, India. 100% of what we raise will go to CSS. You can walk right where you are when convenient with you, or join others on Team India at the following Walks:

  • Boston (Wakefield), MA - June 1, 10:00 am
  • Seabrook, NH - August 24, 10:00 am
  • Newburyport, MA - December 14, Noon

If you have donors who prefer to give offline, ask them to make checks out to "PEER Servants" and give/mail them to you. Then just bring them to the Walk or mail them to PEER Servants at PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801. Please include a slip noting your name and the team you are on. You can also add the offline donations to your fundraising page to show the progress in meeting your fundraising goal.

May God bless you richly and multiply many times over what we can raise together to bless the people of Kolkata, India.
