The organization may be an international, national or local NGO, religious organization, or other organization based in a rural area, with a clear history of working for at least 3 years with marginalized people in the local community, and a commitment toward self-sustainability. ARI does NOT promote church planting evangelism, large-scale agriculture and industrial development, and will not consider organizations with these goals. Single church organizations should apply through their regional association or Diocesan authority. Government offices or departments are normally not considered as SBs. Exceptions are made for countries without NGOs or church organizations.

Asian Rural Institute, an international training institute for rural community leaders, will make a minute educational film on the teachings of Mr. Chatterjee, a graduate of ARI and a gifted educator, is aging; therefore, it is important to document his teachings and ideas in order for ARI to continue to use this valuable training for years to come. Taught by Takami sensei, Chatterjee's teaching and views parallel those of Takami-sensei and this documentary will preserve these concepts for new generations of ARI graduates.
This training is designed for rural leaders living and working in rural Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Latin America. ECHO Asia network members who are grassroots rural leaders and working with a local organization that serves the marginalized in their community, are encouraged to apply. Because this training is designed for individuals and organizations working at the grassroots level, ARI finds funding for tuition, room, board, housing, and travel. ARI is Christian in inspiration, but welcomes people of any faith.
