Fishhook has been helping our trusted friends in India since the early 1990's.
Fishhook works closely with our Indian partners and connects them with resources needed to transform communities. All projects are managed by our partners to ensure sustainability and longevity.
Projects are unique to the community served and often focus on the needs of widows, orphans, and vulnerable children and women.
From medical camps to women's shelters to community development projects, our partners have reached thousands of people across India. After their basic needs are met, people learn to provide for themselves and then, in turn, to help others.
What's in a Name?
We know you are probably wondering where our name, Fishhook International, comes from. Good question! The answer is that our organization began as the Ford Philpot Evangelistic Association in 1955, and one of Ford Philpot's trademarks was a little brass fishhook-shaped lapel pin that he wore and also gave away. The pin was a clever and creative conversation starter. Someone would say to Ford, "Are you a fisherman?" He would look them in the eye and say, "No, but Jesus said, 'Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.'"
