THE STORY:

Sure, fundraising for MTI's training conference is not quite as appealing as donating to rescue orphaned baby elephants and tigers...But this is still a cause worth supporting.

Publishers around the world, and Christian publishers in India specifically, use every chance they can to soak up knowledge and training that could improve their lives.

The charity I work for, Magazine Training International, brings the training to the people through online courses and on-site seminars like this one. Literally...On. Site.

That means, with your help, I'll be going to India soon! Yikes! I mean, Yay! 

I am a bit afraid, not gonna lie. But I really want to go so I can help the conference run smoothly (office/admin part of my job), document the training experience (the fun part of my job), and help Christians around the world (the best part of my job).

- The Official Story - 

Christian publishers all across India need your support. Magazine Training International will return to India next month to offer professional publishing courses to local and international publishers. A reading public that is 65% literate devours over 69,000 magazines and periodicals. However, fewer than 1,000 Christian magazines serve India’s 24 million Christians.

These are the people we will reach with two consecutive six-day intensive courses on magazine management and magazine editing, January 24-February 5, 2016.

Our first two training events in 2011 and 2012 in Bangalore, India, attracted more than 100 publishing staff from 58 magazines. However, few of the many Christian publishers from the state of Kerala were able to attend the training events. This January, we will bring the conference to them. One of the poorest states in India, Kerala nevertheless has one of the highest literacy rates in the nation.

Kerala’s Christian publishers are eager to receive professional training. But in a state with a GDP of less than $1,000 a year, most publishers could not afford the quality training we offer without significant financial aid.

Will you help bring training to publishers in Kerala–and support the printed word around the world?
