Epaphras Trust was established in 2008. The charity objectives are principally to offer voluntary teaching and leadership training to serve in communities, in addition to caring for widows and orphans. We work with organisations in Kenya, India, Nepal and Ukraine.
Our Timothy project partners with EBC situated in Bihar state, India. Sharing a border with Nepal, the state of Bihar is one of the poorest in India.
EBC is an arm of Soul Winning Mission which was birthed from the vision of Emmanuel Samuel, many decades before. His vision was to build a children’s home for orphans, a school and a training facility to train young people from areas of North India. He modelled his vision of faith on the same model as George Muller.
Ken Hart was invited to visit EBC in 2010 and since that time Epaphras Trust has fully resourced EBC. Much has been achieved over the years, including improvements to the menu, the gradual establishment of a library of study materials and musical instruments and the broadening of the curriculum plus other subjects such as English language, computer studies and sewing. A new building to provide decent accommodation, a lecture room and a library for study has been constructed.
For the academic year 2023-2024 there are 59 students, 50 of whom are supported by Epaphras Trust.
