For the Brothers, the ministry of education is an extension of the Gospel. At the time of our founder, education in India was a privilege of elite upper classes. Women were not at all provided opportunity to learn. Common people were aliens to this elite education system. Our Founder, Bro.Paulus Moritz realized that education should be made available to all sections of the society especially to the poor.
He was convinced that education is the best means to empower the poor and marginalized and therefore established rural schools that not only transformed the lives of the poor but also helped people live their Christian faith. His aim was to build up a generation capable of living the Catholic Faith and hence used education ministry extensively as a tool to realise the primary aim of the Congregation. The first school was established in 1908 at Mt.Poinsur, Mumbai with a handful of children.
Today the Brothers continue to carry on the dream of their founder and run over 55 schools educating more than 1,00,000 children; colleges including professional colleges, and 10 technical training institutes. The Brothers strive to serve the marginalized communities working with love, compassion and respect. It’s our aim to address the issue of education inequity while demonstrating how schools can act as inspiration hubs of community-related development. Education is window to the world, key to knowledge and wheels for progress and it’s our mission to transform the life of every child.
