E-mail Print PDF
BELLARY, OCT. 31: “The poor have been always a deprived lot. They should not be deprived doubly. Hence, bring the fruits of quality education to the poor”, declared noted Jesuit social activist, Fr. Claude D’Souza. “Government departments and many NGOs are offering education to a wast majority of children belonging to the poorer and backward sections. However, that education is often lacking in quality”, lamented Fr. DSouza. Fr. Claude D’Souza was addressing the audience after inaugurating a new school building at K. Mariammanahalli in Raichur district on Oct. 31. “Only quality education can be transformative and can bring in a change through the empowerment of the backward children. The quality education which enhances the self esteem of caste infected society can help the children to bloom in dignity and courage”, observed the Jesuit activist. Bishop of Bellary Henry D’Souza blessed the new building. The school is run by the Congregation of the Sisters of Jesus, Mary and Joseph with a boarding house which cares for over 250 boys and girls from the backward places of Raichur district. The local parish priest Fr. Anthony Fernandes took leadership in putting up the new building.
