SARA Ministries

About this partner

SARA Ministries is an outreach program for children in Nepal that consists of a boys home, a girls home, and a community outreach program for children that cannot afford school. The outreach was initiated by Pastor Tej and a growing local church.

Pastor Tej grew up in an orphanage himself, having lost his mother at the age of five, and always had a heart for helping children in need. In 1997, after much prayer and seeking, Pastor Tej and his wife began SARA Church with four members in a small rented room in Kathmandu City. Now, by God’s grace, the church has over 250 committed members and continues to grow. In addition to this, Pastor Tej has shepherded new church congregations around Nepal.

Hope Story has come alongside Pastor Tej and the SARA community in their outreach to orphans and vulnerable families through SARA Ministries providing educational support for children that cannot afford to go to school.
