The spread of the gospel faces huge challenges in the Himalayan region. Only three in every 10,000 people (.03%) identify as Christian. The disabled, widowed and impoverished face rejection and have few options for care in this cultural context. Enabled Healthcare is a holistic, faith-based ministry to the marginalized to meet the practical needs of these overlooked and forgotten people. This opens the doors for sharing the gospel, establishing churches and empowering believers to live out their faith.

Pioneers is excited to play a part in building God’s kingdom among the most vulnerable and neglected people in South Asia.

Enabled Healthcare, launched in 2004, is a network of healthcare workers and volunteers who share the love of Jesus through their tangible service. They have four platforms:

  • Community Health: Full-time staff and nearly 500 community health workers offer villagers basic health care and health education and refer people with serious illnesses to partner hospitals.
  • Disability Support: 15 disability centers support more than 950 people with disabilities.  These centers offer children and adults health education, socialization, needs assessment, therapy and more.
  • Education: Four Christ-centered English-medium schools give children from underprivileged areas a pathway out of poverty.
  • Widow Support: Enabled serves widowed women in dozens of villages across the region. Micro-finance loans help them reclaim their dignity, gain independence and support one another.

Several dozen health-focused Christian programs in South Asia participate in the Enabled network. The organizations vary from local NGOs with only one staff member to large international agencies like World Vision. They share resources, training and IT support. This fosters collaboration and increases the efficiency of each organization. Working together, they serve 380 villages and impact a population of 1.5 million people.
