Continuous Accompaniment for our scholarship students by Gonzaga Foundation

On 26 January 2017 all students who are assisted with scholarship for their studies, were invited for a meeting. The meeting was held in Generalate. It was great to see the girls who are filled with hope and determination to go ahead with their life. As many as 62 students doing B. ed., D.T.T., B. Sc Nursing, B.A., B.Sc., and MSC came for the meeting.

The purpose of the meeting was to encourage our students to work hard to study well so that they could make their life brighter. To encourage and enthuse these girls, Dr. Mary John, a social activist was invited. He oriented them to study well and narrated the real situation in our society. He explained to them the importance of women’s education and how it could improve the life of each girl. He suggested to the girls to make use of the opportunity they had been getting and grow up to be a loving, caring and helping persons in the future.

Mrs. Barbara Addi and her parents, the friends of sisters in Prin-Germany took interest to help us to run this scholarship program. She and her parents happened to be visiting Pondicherry on 26 and we invited them to meet our girls. They were indeed happy to see the girls and encouraged them to study well.

Superior General met all the girls and motivated them to study well. She insisted that a strong desire and hard work is needed for achieving anything in our life. She also encouraged them to contribute something for their society in the future.

Students were fed with good lunch. After the lunch there was a cultural program. The students could show their talents. Our parish Priest was invited to distribute the gifts to the girls.

The entire program was organized by Sr. Velangani, the coordinator of this scholarship program.
