Introduction / History

South Asians in Belgium come from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Some of them have shops.

Many Indians work in the computer and diamond industries. They live in the cities such as Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent. They speak Indian languages and English too.

The Indians are mostly Gujaratis from Gujarat and Marwaris from Rajasthan. Software companies in Belgium employ many Indians.

South Asian marriages are endogamous usually, meaning they prefer marriages to take place within their group. There are Sikhs from Punjab and South Asians of other religions. These people do not generally mix with each other. Some of them are Christians too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Belgian and South Asian Christians will lead the other South Asians to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to Salvation too.
