A part of their process of evangelisation, the American Baptist Mission undertook various projects, secular in nature, such as, opening the schools for both boys and girls, constructing broading houses replacing the bachelors Dormitory, drafting and printing school text books, translations and publications of Bible and religious Tracts into local languages, introduction of modern medicines, dispensaries and hospitals and undertaking many other philanthropic works wherever they established their Mission Stations. The volume deals with the manner in which these activities were carried out by the American Baptist Mission in different States of North-East India in historical perspective.
