Assisi Social centre - non-technical courses for Girls

 The social centre was started some 9 years ago for the poor girls of the locality around the school and church. The intention was to make them more self-reliant and to face the society and meet all challenges and competition in and around Delhi. The girls have been coming regularly for the courses and have found it useful as they can start something on their own or get some good jobs which are well paid. The centre runs beautician course, Spoken English and Computer classes free of cost. The teachers are paid by the friars.
 Friars John Baptist in centre, Ernest and Jude

 The girls put up cultural program for us...it was their annual day too.....

 Welcome song...they say we wouldn't get such a golden opportunity if not for the friars.....they are dressed for the occasion....very simple and God fearing girls who are also hard working

 Dedicated teachers who spend most of their free time with the girls to make them stand on their own feet......they are happy and contended in doing what they are doing with love and sense of charity

 These two run the show.....guide and train the girls under the supervision of Br. Baptist John
 They put up some dances and sang melodies songs...talented and ready to face the world


 I guided them on various points but above all to have self-confidence and to work hard to move on in life....Life is not bed of roses but there will be thrones which will prick and cause pain...but we can't get stagnated but look beyond horizon....there is something waiting for us to embrace.

 They are all non-christians and well behaved....respect the friars who are here.....they are attentive to me



 Friars and sisters too participated in the program

 The mantras for a successful life are to be adopted and implemented....Life will teach many lessons to those who dare to face challenges....hardships and sufferings are everyone's cup of tea....let us drink it...


Colorful dresses.....they are all under 20 and come from good families....they have dreams in their eyes and want to soar higher...they say that we will climb mountains and swim across sea and rivers to achieve what we are meant to achieve in life 
 All seeking blessings and prayers after the program...God bless their dreams and aspirations....
 There shall be showers of blessings upon you dear girls.....





 They all posed for a photo with us........

Father we will remember all that you shared with us.....the mantras for a successful life cannot be forgotten...

 The girl is dressed up in North Indian style....
