In India, since its inception in 1886, most of our apostolic activities are oriented towards education. The presence of our Sisters, in numerous educational institutions at primary, secondary, higher secondary and university level, has definitely made a difference not just in academics, but pretty much in rendering value-based education. Our educational institutions are opened to all irrespective of class or creed with a preferential option for the minorities, the poor, the trial population and the youth. The medium of instruction is in the language of the State and it is in English in some schools. Our institutions aim at:
- Facilitating personal and integral growth resulting in change of attitude
- Offering Counselling
- Helping the youth to discover their hidden potentials
- Creating self-confidence
- Imparting value-based education
Secondary and Higher Secondary Education
Since 1951, our Sisters have been involved in helping the under privileged, and the abandoned children from very poor families. They teach in government and semi-government schools besides running pre-schools and boarding for the destitute children. This ministry enables them to open dialogue with the parents of other faiths and to build a rapport with them and work for peace and reconciliation in the country.
Our Sisters have been present in Congo-Cameroun since 1958. The apostolic commitment of our Sisters is oriented towards the education of children and youth in primary and secondary schools. They work in government and diocesan schools. They also run their own schools.
The first missionaries from India came to Tanzania in the year 1979 to teach in the minor seminary. At present, our Sisters are engaged in education in primary and secondary schools. They aim to develop self-reliance among the new generation, apart from training the future leaders of the society and the Church. They work tirelessly to mould and shape the young girls through holistic formation. The schools have succeeded in preparing the future responsible women leaders and mothers of the society.
Responding to the needs of this country, our Sisters have been rendering their services in the diocese of Kasana-Luweero since 2006. They have begun a senior secondary school at Luweero. Most of the children are orphans and are affected by HIV. Our Sisters help meet their needs as they hail from very poor families.
