Traditionally the Bansphor people have made bamboo baskets and brooms. Today some of them work for the Indian government, in factories or as day laborers. In India's northwestern state of Rajasthan, the Bansphors are called Basod. They have a low literacy rate, and alcoholism is a problem in their communities.
These Hindu primarily worship Lakshmi and Ganesh along with their clan gods.
Pray that the Bansphor people will put their hope in Christ.
