Barbara works at Kodaikanal International School, a Christian Multicultural Residential school, in S. India. She teaches art, and works as High School Coordinator for grades 9-12. Students come from 25-30 nationalities, the majority from within Asia. Many are from non-Christian homes.
She also works with Bethania Home for Children, which takes in children in need. Around 45 children are supported by the home, a Christian NGO, with 35 in residence. These children have lost one or both parents, and come from homes where they could not be cared for. Bethania offers a safe home in a rural, farm setting, and a chance to grow up with a knowledge of Jesus’ love for them.
