Student Centers, Hostels & Balawadies

The student centers and student hostels of our Diocese is serving with the motto “Education for Liberation”. This service was to care for students with limited resources in the various mission fields and provide them with good hostel facilities. The hostels at Mydukur, Honavar, Sankeshwar, Sirsi, Mundugod, H. B. Halli, Devanahally, Chinthamani, Chagalamari, Ankola and Pollachi catered to the children from the less privileged families. These centers rendered Pastoral care to the students studying in our diocesan limits. They were taken care of for their spiritual needs by the student chaplains and youth workers. There are seventy one Balawadies in the Diocese catering to small children from the villages. These are the centers for their physical and social growth. Dedicated teachers were employed for educating these children. (Reports of hostels included along with mission reports)
