BG Hands Ministries is a non-profit NGO, founded in 2011 by Mr. Dhruba Kumar Pariyar. The ministry reaches out to and ministers to the downtrodden people of Nepal who need to know that they are created in God’s image, and so are highly valued.
Dhruba was born to a Hindu family and grew up in a caste system that did not allow him the privileges of others. He was treated poorly. This was painful, and he felt shame with no way to ever escape this stigma. Then he met a follower of Christ who took him to church.
At church, Dhruba had the opportunity to hear about the Lord Jesus Christ. He felt the love of God and read from the Bible that all men were created equal:
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” —Galatians 3:28.
“For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body: whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink.”—1 Corinthians 12:13
These words from God brought great joy and a satisfying peace to Dhruba’s heart, and he received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord. His life began to change, and he found value and purpose to the life God intended.
Dhruba is now active in serving God. The Mission of BG Hands Ministries is to positively impact Nepal by holistically ministering to the Dalit and all marginalized people. “Dalit” means oppressed, downtrodden, and exploited. Members of the Dalit community (also known to much of the world as “untouchables”) are routinely denied social, political, religious, and economic rights. In addition to the systematic abuses perpetrated against the Dalit, Nepali Dalits have been forced to endure Government approved and legislated discrimination. BG Hands Ministries seeks to bring God’s ordained freedom and release to these ‘oppressed’ people.
“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?” —James 2:15,16
BG Hands Ministries is active in Publishing gospel tracts with titles such as, “Kasto Ramro ra Arthapurna Jeevan” (How Wonderful and Meaningful a Life) which contain messages that are relevant to the Dalit people of Nepal, and share the love of Jesus as they distribute them. They recently started publishing a gospel tract called, “Tapaiko Yatra Safal Rahos” (Wish You Have a Safe Journey) and are excited to be distributing it as well.
BG Hands also broadcasts a radio program called “Mukti Ko Sandesh” (Message of Salvation) as an evangelistic outreach and to build an awareness among the Dalit and marginalized, to demonstrate the righteous life that God expects of His people. This way the growing church can also be built up and equipped for every good work.
BG Hands Ministry is even helping poor believers in the church through micro-business startups.
Their goals are…
- To reach each and every Dalit and marginalized person with the love of Jesus Christ.

Their vision is…
To see Dalit and Marginalized people transformed and live as humans.
“Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” —1 Peter 2:10
