Paul sdb
SUKET, FEBRUARY 14, 2011: The students of STD IX along with the Past Pupils of Don Bosco School, Suket lived the exhortation of the Church, “that children reach out to other children in love” on the occasion of Holy Childhood Day, by organizing a day of games, entertainment and fellowship. Two hundred and fifty children came to the school premises on February 13, 2011.


Don Bosco Mission in Suket, with the help of Don Bosco Development Office - Matunga, reaches out to children of twelve surrounding villages wherein eighteen Village Primary Education Center’s have been established so far. The response from these villages has been encouraging. There is a growing demand to start such centers in the nearby locations. While the children who frequent these centers get a chance to apply themselves to their studies, thein their surroundings. It is worth mentioning that an increasing number of elders in these villages have wholeheartedly welcomed this initiative and do definitely see the importance of allowing their children receive primary school education, a concept indigestible even a few years ago.
