We, the sisters of the Congregation of Jesus and
Mary serving the cause of education in India since 1842,
commit ourselves to the promotion of a more just
and humane society in our country. The inspiration
provided by our foundress, Claudine Thevenet, since 1818, continues to strengthen this commitment.
In the India of today the pressure of casteism,
communalism, poverty and exploitative structures
make it imperative to equip our students not only with
intellectual skills but also with a set of attitudes
imbued with social, moral and spiritual values.
Our commitment to this kind of education is
made in order to Serve specifically the young and
among them the poor. We will also seek to conscientize
them of their rights and struggles in the face of the
ongoing oppression and exploitation of women.
We invite our collaborators, students and parents
to work with us in realizing our challenging vision of
bringing about a new India.
