The history of Zion in Shimoga District goes back to the year 1978. 'More into the villages of Shimoga' was our first motto. Then, after many years of interaction with the villages, a Holistic Community Development Programme was charted out integrating into it an agenda for action relating to total health, basic education, socio-economic advancement, formation of community organization, rural leadership, giving priority to saving the family through its womanpower. This has been achieved through educating the people through Kindergartens, Schools, special schools for mentally and physically challenged, through orphanages and hostels, job oriented training center; organizing the people through self-help groups; through health services: through Hospitals and clinics and mobile health units and other measures for health awareness; taking measures for improved and integrated and organic farming and serving the aged and homeless. Presently Zion has its presence in the whole of Shimoga District consisting a number of 12 sub units and 13 Personnel.
