Introduction / History

The Pando are one of 35 colorful tribes whose abode is the state of Chhattisgarh, situated in the central part of India. Each of these tribes has its unique cultural tradition, complete with rhythmic folk music, dances and dramas. The Pando in particular are concentrated in the Surguja and Korea districts of this state. The Pando region consists of plateaus and hills. A huge portion of its total area is also covered by forests.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Surrounded by natural beauty, the Pando are on the lower rungs of prosperity. They do small scale farming for their living. Daily labor, cultivation, cattle, birds and forest produce supplement their income. However, they do not have the basic facilities of electricity, roads and health care. There is not a single health center where people can go in case of emergency. A few Pando villages have government run nursery and primary schools, but they show no interest in education.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Karma is a festival in celebration of Pando's liquor god, is the following day. Everyone, young and old, men and women, will be drinking the whole day.


What Are Their Needs?

There is great scope and need for mission work among the Pando community. Let us intercede to the Lord of the harvest for these needy people.


Prayer Points

Pray for loving workers to go to the Pando people until there are disciples who make more disciples.
Pray the Lord will prepare the hearts of the Pando to understand and to believe the gospel.
Pray for the Lord to bless the Pando people with adequate education and medical facilities.
Pray for the Lord to bless the Pando people so abundantly that they will see he is the only one worthy of praise and worship.
