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.
