BELLARY, JAN 16: Over 140 school children and youth met for a get together of the beneficiaries of the Kowtal sponsorship programme held at Kowtal Church premises on Jan. 15.

“It was matter of great joy to witness the incredible work done by the Diocesan sponsorship programme to promote education among the socially deprived and backward sections”, said Bishop Henry D’Souza. He was visibly moved by the enthusiastic response from the beneficiaries and their keen desire to do better.

“Every child should nurture a dream for oneself and the society. The dream should energize them to become their best and to do their best for society”, Bishop added.

The participants included students doing nursing, business management, polytechnic, education and school education.

Earlier, the Director of the programme Fr. Devanesan welcomed the gathering and Secretary of the Diocesan Sponsorship Committee, Fr B. Francis facilitated the programme. Fr. Ponnusamy attended to the logistics.

The participants expressed their great joy over the meet and tanked the sponsors for their kind and generous help. The meet ended with a fellowship meal.
