Sacred Heart Nursing College - Dindugal:

The sisters of the Sacred Heart always dreamed of running their own Nursing College. By the Grace of God, and help from generous donors, the Sacred Heart College of Nursing has been constructed in the town of Dindugal, India. It was inaugurated in Oct. 2012 by the Bishop of Vellore, and Sr. Anne of the SSHJ.

Each year, a few orphan children study in the Nursing College, and a few graduates (who were supported by the mission) now serve as faculty. The college is also looking for assistance from other established nursing colleges to enhance & expand capabilities.

There is currently a great need for financial help for building a dormitory, and expanding the clinical laboratory, and library. Additionally, a Hospital needs to be constructed in the college campus within 5 years, to satisfy statutory requirements. Your generous contribution is vital for continued success.

Children Education Support

This program provides financial help needed to support the school and college tuition costs of the children. The average cost of education for the children is as follows:

  • High School = $ 100 /child / year
  • Nursing Diploma = $ 900 / child / year
  • Nursing Degree = $ 2000 / child / year

There is no sustained funding to support the education of any orphan child. As education is the most effective way to make the children self sufficient, there is a great need for help and contribution support. In 2006-07, the mission has funded the cost of education of 12 children.

Education is the current focus of the mission.

College Tuition Support

There is great need to educate and train the children to become self-sufficient adults. With only meager funds, a majority of children (girls) were not able to attend college. Without a college education, the girls found it very difficult to find employment. It was a priority to provide some professional education for the girls to enable them to become self sufficient.

Sr. Annamal writes “ We are happy that you (the mission) were very much appreciative of this idea and you came forward to help our children to have professional training. We are deeply grateful for your generous support”.
