St. Joseph’s non-formal
carpentry training center:
Carpentry trainees are grownup dropouts (aged between 15
– 20 years) from different remote villages. They are trained in our St. Joseph’s
non-formal carpentry training center. This training centre was started during the
year 2000-2001 with seven boys. The strength was increased slowly year by year until
the outbreak of Covid-19. After they master the trade, they move fruitfully for
their jobs and they have a decent job and live a satisfied life.
The History of the House Don Bosco Boys' home, Thattanchavady is a home for the orphans, destitute, school dropouts, street children and young at risk. This is a public welfare, service oriented, non-profitable institution started in the year 1986 for the school dropouts in and around Pondicherry and the nearby villages, irrespective of caste, creed and colour. It accepts them with open arms and gives them education, guidance, love, attention and calls for their individual capacity and inclination. Besides their educational needs food, shelter and clothes are provided.
