India Office Matures Posted: May 22 2008 12:00AM

CNEWA’s regional office in Ernakulam, Kerala, is now a registered charitable organization under Indian law. The Indian government approved the office’s application for legal identity as well as for currency registration, which allows it to receive and disburse foreign currency. This legal status also gives CNEWA India the freedom to raise funds throughout India and to process those funds directly.

The evolution of CNEWA’s India office opens a door of opportunity: By far the single largest country program of the agency, CNEWA’s new legal status enables its local churches to participate in CNEWA’s mission to advance the works of the Eastern churches.
