The original Commission with which the Missionaries were sent to India was to establish schools and also institutions for training future missionaries. The mission of educating was considered important. So wherever there was to be a congregation, there had to be an elementary teacher. Besides elementary education they also began to train people to be Missionaries as early as 1840. The field experience soon made the Missionaries feel that they needed to involve themselves in creating some remunerative jobs rather than just educating people. The main task that the Missionaries faced was to solve the economic backwardness of a large number of people. The traditional professions were considered not adequate or not acceptable. Thus alternate jobs had to be found and the Missionaries did their best to provide the same.
