Don Bosco Vidya Kshethra (Temple of Learning) has been in the forefront of ventures towards education of the locality. The High School and the Higher Secondary School, presently running full to the limited capacity is one project that has made education accessible to the children.
This school and boarding is a great boon particularly to the girls who would otherwise not be able to make it to high school. The nearest other school is about 25 kilometers away. The rural nature of the place and lack of sufficient transport makes it even more remote.
The young girls who study in the higher secondary (Class 11 & 12) are living in a very dilapidated shed. We have been dreaming of an adequate hostel facility for this group. August 17th has been a very happy day for this project as it has blessed the foundation stone for the proposed Hostel for the Girls.
Fr. Thomas Anchukandam the Salesian Provincial of Bangalore blessed the foundation stone to the great happiness and expectations of all particularly the girls who need better facilities. The rain on the day could only lead to an indoor function in other facilities of the campus but not dampen the spirits of everyone present.
We look forward to making this dream and this project into a reality. We solicit cooperation of all who care to share and contribute to quality education of these young girls.
