Introduction / History

The Bandhi people are also known as the Rehr or Bhand, a name that comes from the word for bamboo. This is because most of them make their living by making bamboo baskets. They also make bamboo pots for storing large amounts of grain. Some have managed to get land for cultivation while others are day laborers. They have been blessed with a better infrastructure than most rural communities. They have electricity, a good water supply, roads, and schools.

A Bandhi woman can divorce her husband and marry another man provided the new husband pays the first husband compensation. One can marry the wife's younger sister or the husband's younger brother when the spouse dies. All sons get an equal amount of the inheritance.

Pray that the Bandhi people will hear of and desire an inheritance in Christ.
