How it all started
“Necessity is the mother of invention”
DRM was conceived in response to a need under pressing circumstances. Here’s the story behind it...
During the COVID 19 lockdown in April 2020, Dr. Latha Christie from Bangalore, India, shared her burden to pray and intercede for the lives of those affected by the pandemic and the nation with a few of her friends online.
This group gradually grew in strength as more women joined to pray regularly with time.
Thus, the Deborah Rise Movement (DRM) Prayer Connect was born.
As the COVID 19 crisis prolonged, soaring unemployment rates increased domestic violence and abuse; with many people going into depression. Thus, the DRM Helpline Connect was formed to enable victims to call in for prayer and support.
Although this movement was initiated by women, men pitched in to help, and this gave rise to the DRM Heart to Heart and the Lifeline Connect talk series.
Many members of the group -- especially single parents, expressed that they were finding it difficult to connect with their young children and teens and were struggling with several of life's unanswered questions. Keeping this in mind, the DRM Youth Connect was initiated.
Why join the movement
History shows that sweeping social changes that have happened across the world weren't led by big organizations but by movements. Great things are possible only when like-minded individuals join hands to steer society towards the right goals. By being a part of this movement, you can make a difference in the world that we live in.
