Our parish at Dondapudi in Andhra Pradesh is spread in vast areas with many villages far from the Parish Center. It is not possible for the villagers to come to the Parish Church every Sunday for the Holy Mass. We have station churches in almost all the villages. The children have no possibility for studies. Those children who are grown enough are sent to feed the cattle or work in the fields. We have opened a boy’s home to bring selected few boys and to educate them so that slowly they will be able to work for the family and provide what is necessary for them. There are around forty children in the hostel and we are providing them food, clothes and education. Caritas Antoniana has sponsored the building and we are requesting our benefactors around the world to contribute for the education of these boys.
