I am a retired businessman from Canada who has come to India to do humanitarian work. However, my friends told me that before I begin such work I should learn Hindi which most people in North India, especially poor people speak. Therefore, I spent much of last year learning Hindi from a staff member at Nijaat. I also had my meals at Nijaat for a very modest monthly amount. So I have come to know Nijaat fairly well. I very much appreciated Nijaat for allowing me to eat and practice Hindi there with the staff and clients. The staff has all been very friendly and encouraging.

Nijaat has also allowed me to speak with the clients informally about my faith in the Lord Jesus, even though they have staff and clients of all faith backgrounds. I believe the ministry at Nijaat is unique in that it emphasis positive reinforcement, teaching the clients that God loves and cares about them; that they are valuable to Him and He wants only their best. In this context, Nijaat provides counselling, basic medical care and opportunities for physical (PT every morning) and spiritual exercise (a prayer room is available, and devotional and meditation periods are scheduled). Also, three times a day good nutritional food is provided.

The results of Nijaat’s ministry are quite evident. I have seen men come to Nijaat addicted to drugs or alcohol and looking profoundly sad, despairing and hopeless. They leave, after taking the program, free from their addiction with hope, energy and self-confidence. Thus, I encourage anyone interested in investing in a ministry for people with drug and alcohol problems to seriously consider supporting Nijaat. It would be an investment in a ministry with a proven track record of helping free men of addictions and giving them hope and confidence when before they had none.
