Online Book of Remembrance to Brother Kames Kimpton
We are honoured to create the Book of Remembrance to Brother James Kimpton after a lifetime of service ‘Reaching the Unreached’ (RTU).
Brother Kimpton started working to better the opportunities of those in abject poverty in Sri Lanka in 1952.
Following the expulsion of all foreigners in 1964 he moved to India, managing a training school for destitute boys in Madurai.
Setting himself and others the highest standards of integrity and commitment working with RTU over 52 years has organised the building more than 8700 homes and 2500 wells.
Deeply spiritual he relied on his Christian faith in building a thriving organisation admired throughout the world.
Never retiring, he passed away in India in October 2017 being sorely missed by those he helped and worked with to the end.
This book is rather special in featuring messages in both English and Tamil, being the local language.
The online books support both typed and pasted non-latin characters ensuring inclusion of communities worldwide.
Reading the inspiring messages in the book is a fitting tribute to a very special humanitarian who cared more for others.
