Introduction / History

The Sadgope Yadav peoples are rare! Unlike most agricultural people, their status is neither high nor low. They are a subgroup of the Yadav people. Traditionally they were involved with the cattle trade. They are concentrated in West Bengal, though a good number also live farther east in Bangladesh.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many of the Chasot, or Sadgope Yadavs, own land and work in agriculture and small businesses, and education does not usually go beyond secondary level for them.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Like other Yadav peoples, the Sadgopes have high enough status that it is hard to find those who can reach them without being looked down upon because most Bangladeshi believers are from low status communities. These Hindus also claim to be descendants of King Yadu, which gives them a sense of high honor.


What Are Their Needs?

These agricultural people need to experience the abundant life that only Jesus Christ can offer. (John 10:10)


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Yadav Sadgope in Bangladesh.

Pray for a spiritual hunger that would drive the Sadgope Yadavs to the loving arms of Jesus. Pray for workers who are filled with the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit to go to the Sadgope Yadavs. Pray for a movement to Christ that would affect this community in Bangladesh and India.
