Mundgod, Oct 23:
Scores of poor and deprived children in Mundgod have been able to look forward to a bright future, thanks to the education and care provided by Jesuit Fathers at Loyola School here.
The Jesuit Fathers made a small beginning in Mundgod, Uttara Kannada district, with student strength of 38 in 1991, and today the number has multiplied to 670 children in classes 1 to 10. Some of the past students are already employed as drivers, office assistants, government employees and a few are even holding lucrative employments.

These children, coming from the deprived sections of our society, are presently housed in 15 small cottages located on the vast campus; each cottage is under the supervision of a matron who gives home care to the students. In order to provide simple but healthy food to these children, each cottage has a separate kitchen with a cook. The later provision however is found to be not a viable one.

With this in view, with the blessings of Provincial Fr Francis Serrao, a plan has been drawn to have a modern kitchen and a multipurpose hall which, when not used as a dining place, will be utilized for conducting debates, seminars etc. The seating capacity of this place is 300 with tables for dining. This new system which could easily be managed with just 4 cooks/helpers will be highly economical.
The plans are ready, required permissions from the civil authorities are in place and the construction work could begin at any time now at the estimated cost of Rs 49,00,000.
Three friends have come forward and contributed a total amount of Rs 11,50,000. The balance needs to be raised from all the Jesuit well-wishers. The Provincial and the Jesuit Community seek financial assistance from philanthropists, individuals and organizations in their mission to provide a decent life to hundreds of needy children.

Donations however small or large may be sent directly to the following bank account:

    I studied in a Jesuit school in Pune (St. Vincent's). Am a student of Tibetan Buddhism and psychology and am considering a move for few years to Mundgod to learn Tibetan language. I have very strong educational qualifications and work experience in teaching and training. If a teacher is needed for primary and high school English, Social Science and Physics, would like to explore the possibility of working as a teacher at Loyola, Mundgod.
