One third of the world's poor live in India which has a population of 1.2 billion, with 75% of families living in remote villages.

IVCM seeks to bring help and hope to some of these communities in the largest unreached nation on the earth!


Some interesting statistics about the population of India.

The current population of India is 1,321,517,418 as of March 1, 2016, based on the latest United Nations estimates.

  • India population is equivalent to 17.84% of the total world population.
  • India ranks number 2 in the list of countries by population.
  • The population density in India is 446 per Km2 (1,156 people per mi2).
  • The total land area is 2,972,892 Km2 (1,147,839 sq. miles)
  • 32 % of the population is urban (429,802,441 people in 2016)
  • The median age in India is 26.9 years

It’s certainly true that India has much to admire and in recent years has made some significant economic advances for its middle and upper classes. But problems rooted in culture and calamity keep much of the population mired in abject poverty. In the remote locations where we work and where communities find it hard to survive, the help that IVCM offers can make a huge difference.

Pastor Martin and family at new bore well head

Needy Village Gets New Bore Well

We have been able to start an exciting new project thanks to the generous members of Hemel Hempstead Baptist Church. The people at Pastor Martin's village had a water problem and lost many hours each day walking far to collect water and then carrying the heavy buckets back to the village. After a harvest fund raiser, enough funds were collected to enable a new bore well to be dug right next to the church. Once this project has been completed Pastor Martin will be able to share this benefit with the whole village which will not only bring a practical blessing but hopefully a spiritual one too as the villages will be more open to the message of the gospel.
