NOSA Gaya widens its circle of social service
In collaboration with Father Jose Kariakatt, S.J. and his team in Bodh Gaya, the Nazareth Old Students Association (NOSA) President Rajan Sinha and other members of the executive committee along with former principal, Sister Anne Marie Thayilchirayil and current principal, Sister Sophia Joseph Pampackal, patrons of NOSA, met five young women of Barachatti area — very poor villages where the Naxalites are active — last week. Some of these women have been educated up to matriculation at the Jesuit Center. To help them to stand on their own feet, they have been encouraged to take up sewing classes. NOSA has promised to help them with the training and provide them with sewing machines. There are many women like them who are grateful for any help extended to them. Former SCN students are happy to help those who for some reason or other find themselves on the margins.
