North India Tribal Mission

The North India Tribal Mission (NITM) is a Christian education organisation. It has existed since 1987.

The mission participates in education promotion programmes, child welfare and Church planting, specifically with remote tribal communities in India. It has adopted 24 children, most of whom are orphans.

It is an inter-denominational group, founded by Pastor Augustine Manickathan, who grew up in a Roman Catholic family in Kerala.

Famous quotes containing the words mission, tribal, north and/or india:

    I am succeeding quite well in my work and the future looks well. What special mission is God preparing me for? Cutting off all earthly ties and isolating me as it were.
    Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)

    What is this conversation, now secular,
    A speech not mine yet speaking for me in
    The heaving jelly of my tribal air?
    It rises in the throat, it climbs the tongue,
    It perches there for secret tutelage....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    So-called Western Civilization, as practised in half of Europe, some of Asia and a few parts of North America, is better than anything else available. Western civilization not only provides a bit of life, a pinch of liberty and the occasional pursuance of happiness, it’s also the only thing that’s ever tried to. Our civilization is the first in history to show even the slightest concern for average, undistinguished, none-too-commendable people like us.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    But nothing in India is identifiable, the mere asking of a question causes it to disappear or to merge in something else.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
