The Foundation was established on July 17, 2005 by Anjali C. Das, Sanjay A. Das and David Q. Puckett (son in-law) at the fortieth wedding anniversary of their parents for four decades of an exceptional marriage filled with love, joy, devotion and compassion that has touched the lives of many people in India and the United States.
Both Man and Promilla Das are huge proponents of helping underprivileged people in India and other third world countries. One of the self-appointed missions is the India Re-Connect to raise much needed funds for the ministry of “transforming hopelessness into Hope for the poorest of the poor” children of India so that they can experience amazing grace and hope for a preferred future.
The Man Singh and Promilla Das Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt philanthropic trust under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation through the India Re-Connect Mission provides room, board, tuition, books, clothes and spiritual nurture for the children who have been thrown away, abused, neglected and abandoned; children who come from poor families, from outcast families, from rural areas and slums too poor or too far away for a day school. In addition, the Foundation provides support for Community Outreach Ministries-Street children, orphanages, handicapped rehab training, blind, child laborers and sex workers, etc.
This year marks the 7th year of the India Re-Connect Mission and your gift, even a tiny drop, added to others, has made a phenomenal difference in the lives of 903 children during the last 7 years. Your generous and sacrificial gifts of about 197 mission partners have helped pay for room, board and tuition fees for 903 children in 11 mission boarding schools all over India. In addition, your “Drop in the Bucket” has supported Community Outreach Ministries, renovation of deteriorating toilet facilities, classrooms, roofs, hostel and school buildings, parsonages, medical clinics in rural areas and the slums of India.
The Miracles of the Loaves and Fishes
The India Re-Connect Mission is a faith based ministry of the “Miracle of the loaves” (John 6:1-13), where 5000 people were fed and twelve baskets were filled with left overs. We are reminded that God gives us in abundance. He takes whatever we can offer him in time, ability, or resources and multiplies its effectiveness beyond our wildest expectations. If we take the first step in making ourselves available to him, he will show us how greatly we can be used to advance the work of his kingdom.
