“Go therefore and teach all nations…” (Mt.28.19) was the Lord’s command to His disciples. As the faithful servants of St. Joseph and of the church, we the sisters of St. Joseph of Annecy living among the poor and the disadvantaged were challenged to take up the educational, social and health ministries.
Many schools were established in rural and urban areas providing quality and value based education to the students. Educational opportunities remain out of grasp for large numbers of rural poor, especially girls. Therefore we opened hostels providing opportunities to these children to learn. They are nurtured, guided and challenged to reach their fullest potential. It is indispensable that education enables women not only to gain more knowledge but also helps her to get status, positive self- esteem, and self –confidence, necessary courage and inner strength to face challenges in life.
Today we have schools both for boys and girls in seven states of India regarded highly for their excellence and for the contribution to the society. This is possible only because of the dedicated and qualified educators.
We have vowed through our school to be of service especially to the impoverished, disadvantaged and the uneducated people of the society.
