INDIA

India, with more than a billion inhabitants, is the second most populous country in the world and the poverty of a great part of its population remains enormous. Many minors are excluded from the educational system because they are poor and find themselves working, often in conditions of abuse and violence, in order to survive and to help their families.

The Salvatorian missionaries have been present in India since 1989. We work so that education may be assured to everyone. Thus we have built and manage schools in the states of Assam (in Dhing and Nagaon) and Meghalaya (in Laitkynsew). In Ranchi, in the state of Jharkhand, we are building a new school, complete with living facilities to host the youngsters.
