Deuteronomy 6:6-7: And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
VTVMI has dedicatedly, for the past 15 years, been bringing a ray a hope to children who live in underprivileged areas through education. Due to lack of education, they are choked by chains of slavery for generation and the only way to break that bondage is through education. If these children are not taught how to read and write, how else they will come to know and have a personal relationship with their Heavenly Father? VTVMI currently has 9 afterschool programs reaching to 450 students in different areas of Punjab.
Isaiah 41:17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them; I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
We felt that the Lord called us to broaden our horizons for His ministry. We felt that we needed to reach out to a neglected and overlooked part of our community, that community being widows, divorced women, single mothers, and just women in general who had no one to help them get back on their feet. In Pakistan, women who are widowed or divorced are often shunned due to the believe that their husbands leaving them or passing away was because of their doing. She often ends up reliant on her family members to provide some security and is not really encouraged to try to find a career or education path to help build herself up. this is why we are grateful to God for giving us this vision to try to help these women be self sufficient. we have established sewing centers where they can learn how to become seamstresses and make a living through that. in Pakistan, all the clothes are tailored to specific body sizes, the concept of ready made clothes is slowly working its way into the market but traditionally, you get your clothes tailored. with this sort of profession, it gives them the ability to make a safe and honest living all while being in the comfort of their own home.
