Don Bosco Yadagiri empowers the people especially the underprivileged through evangelization and education
The bishop of Bellary in 1995 requested the Salesians to take up and area in northern Karnataka and offerd the taluks of Deodurga in Raichur distirct and Yadgiri in Gulbarga district.
Fr. Thamos Myladoor, the then Provincial along with the Vice-Provincial visited Yadgir and the urgency was felt to start a centre in the region. The bisop of Bellary handed over the Yadgir taluk to the Salesians through a letter dated August 27, 1996. It was given to the Salesians as quasi parish with a small Catholic community.
The province purchased 9 acres of land in August 2000, which was developed for various cultivations and for future development. A small chapel-cum-residence was blessed in August 2002.
The centre has obtained a No-Objection Certificate from the Government of Karnataka to establish in Yadgir, the Don Bosco College of Education offering B.Ed and D.Ed course with an intake of 100 and 45 students per year respectively. The centre launched the courses in 2004-2005.
