Annie Margaret Barr, a British Unitarian minister, lived and worked among the Khasi people in NE India for more than 40 years, until her death in 1973.

She defied the standards for women in her time by requesting and receiving a post to India, met Gandhi, worked as a teacher in Calcutta and opened schools and an orphanage in Kharang, in the Khasi Hills.

On Partner Church Sunday, we celebrate and remember this amazing woman and learn about her gifts and challenges.
