Introduction / History

The Kaora are a "scheduled tribe" that lives mainly in India, though there is also a small contingent in Bangladesh. Members of scheduled tribes have low status in Hindu society.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Kaora people are mostly landless. They work as agricultural laborers and fish farmers. Some raise pigs and goats while others are drummers, rickshaw-pullers or palanquin-bearers. Their girls get married between the ages of 12-16, and boys are married at 20-25. Women have very low status in Kaora communities.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Kaora people are entirely Hindu, worshiping a variety of Hindu gods and goddesses. They cremate the dead and place the remains in a river.


What Are Their Needs?

They do not have many educational opportunities, and they suffer from illiteracy. The gospel needs to come to them in oral as well as written forms. Perhaps workers who can tell stories from scripture will be led by the Lord's Spirit to these people, in both Bangladesh and India.


Prayer Points

Even though there may be no followers of Jesus today among the Kaora in either Bangladesh or India, we can trust there soon will be many such followers. Pray for this to occur soon. Please pray for a rising literacy rate among this people group, and for improving employment opportunities. Pray for spiritual discernment and openness that will draw the Kaora people to the only savior. Pray for workers.
