DONATIONS TOWARD EDUCATION
The Archdiocese of Gandhinagar works extensively in the education of the marginalized dalit and tribal children. The fees charged these students for tuition, boarding/lodging are nominal.
We have been supported by your kind generosity over the years. With more than 2,500 students in the various boarding schools in our Archdiocese, your donations go a long way in the education of the marginalized in our society. A donation of Rs. 10,000 covers the education and boarding lodging expenses for a student for an entire academic year. Smaller amounts too add up.
DONATIONS TOWARD PRIESTLY FORMATION
In order to continue our work, we are in constant need to devoted men and women who consecrate themselves to religious life and service of their fellow man. You can help in the sponsorship of the education of a priest. A purse of Rs200,000 (approx. USD4,000) will cover the entire educational costs over the duration of his priestly studies. You can choose to remain as an anonymous donor or correspond and support the seminarian during the course of his studies. Many of our donors have found this to be an enriching experience as well. Donations of smaller denomination are also welcome. Please annotate your contribution with the purpose for which you would like to see it used.
