Where We Go

Global Village Renewal’s mission field is the state of Tamil Nadu in Southeast India.

From the United States, our arrival city varies based on airfare at the time.

Once in India, we travel first to Chennai and meet our local partner, Rural Education and Action for Liberation (REAL). Our REAL partner travels with us to the French territory of Pondicherry. This is where our volunteers and staff stay in a clean and comfortable hotel.

Each day, we take a 90-minute ride from Pondicherry to a rural village in the Villapuram or Cuddalore districts. Here, working with REAL, we serve villagers that no other U.S.-based ministry is serving.
