Introduction / History

The word dhangar is derived from the Sanskrit word dhenu, meaning cow. Most live in India, but there are also many in Pakistan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They keep a special breed of cows and buffalo known as Dhangar mhasi and Dhangar gai.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They are Hindus. Children are named after ancestors, gods and goddesses. The sacred thread is worn during marriage. Their favorit deities are Khandoba and Biroba.


What Are Their Needs?

Their low literacy rate is an obstacle if the gospel comes to them only in printed form. Teams can distribute gospel films, recordings and stories from scripture.


Prayer Points

Pray that many of the Dhangar Bharwad will come to love God with their whole being and will walk in his ways.
Pray Christian believers among the Dhangar community will become mature in the faith, able to have a bold, kind witness for Jesus to their neighbors.
Pray the Dhangar will increasingly hunger to know the creator God in a personal way.
