A Brief History
The Salesians started a technical school for the poor youth amid fears and hostility from the locals. After the infamous persecution of Christians in the Kandhamal district of Odisha.

With a three acre of land they started the mission. Soon the people got attracted to the Salesians as their approach was different.
