Divya Shanthi

The mission of Divya Shanthi Christian Association and Trust is to work with economically poor and socially excluded familes and support them in the education of their children and in their efforts to improve their quality of life.

Who we are:

Divya Shanthi is a community motivated by the love the Lord Jesus Christ and called to express it in serving those in need.


The vision of Divya Shanthi is communities where justice, freedom, economic inclusion and flourishing, human dignity, religious harmony and sustainable environments flourish and contribute to nation building.

Our programs include high school, open school, school for special needs, learning centers, credit and savings groups, vocational training centers, adult literacy, health care and awareness, clinics and camps, supporting victimes through advocacy and counselling, community organisation, legal support, housing and environment, development in business and micro enterprise, co-operative society and spiritual growth.

Our support partners are both local and international. Our main support groups are Divya Shanthi Mission Support Organisation (DSMSO), Oxford, UK and Barnabas Aid International, UK.


St Nicholas Church Marston has been supporting the work of Divya Shanti for many years and actively raises funds to support the various projects that make a difference to the children, young people,  families and the wider community in Bangalore helped by the trust.
