OVERVIEW

India occupies the greater part of South Asia and is ranked the second-most populous country in the world, after China. Gross inequities are found in all regions of the country and overwhelming numbers continue to live in extreme poverty. CBM was among the first mission organizations to devolve properties and leadership positions to the national church in India and Bolivia.
