Khasi Hills School Tour and Share the Plate Month

You are invited to view a video of the progress the school in India we have been sponsoring since 2003 has been making. Through generous contributions, we have been funding two teachers’ full salaries at the Higher Secondary School which we helped build in 2016. We have made great progress and hope to raise the remaining $3500 through the February Share the Plate Month. To donate send a check to the church office with Share the Plate – Khasi Hills on the memo line. Alternatively, go to and choose to Share the Plate from the drop-down menu this month or choose Khasi Hills Sponsorship to donate any time. Our church and denomination have made such an impact to support our Unitarian sisters and brothers halfway around the world both emotionally and practically.

The Khasi Hills Partnership team invites you to join us in this inspiring mission at our next team meeting on Sunday, March 20 at 9:00 AM where we will be joined by our India contact, Barri Mukhim. For questions or Zoom Link, contact Karen Litzinger at 412-977-4029 or

Our team hopes you enjoy the video, especially the personal messages at the end from the two teachers we sponsor.

For your convenience, we are including the excerpts from recent letters of the two teachers below.

From Altresha Marbaniang: I would like to express my joy, gratitude, and thankfulness to the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh for all the love, kindness, gracious help, and for your continuous support for us.

From Lamborlang Syiem: I don’t have much to say but only to wish you all luck and blessing. May the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh grow bigger and bigger and may God bless you all abundantly in every field of life.
