Introduction / History

The Korama are a scheduled caste who live in Karnataka. They speak Tamil and Kannada.

What Are Their Lives Like?

They traditionally worked as fortune tellers, bamboo workers and other occupations. Many of them are day laborers now. The Korama prefer marriages between cousins. They are endogamous at local level which means they prefer to keep marriages within the group. The Korama educate their boys more than they educate their girls. Their literacy level is low, so the gospel will need to be presented in oral forms.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is their religion.

What Are Their Needs?

They need to accept the blessings of Jesus Christ, the one who came to give, "life to the full."

Prayer Points

Pray for the Holy Spirit to direct their leaders to open the door for a disciple making movement. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead this people group to the blessings of Christ. Pray that gospel recordings and the JESUS Film will become easily available to them.
