A Brief History
Thumma Bala, the Bishop of Warangal Diocese on 24th April 1992 invited the Salesians of Don Bosco to the diocese. They were asked to take over and develop the Mission Complex at Mariapuram In this complex there is an English Medium school from LKG to class 10 and a Telugu Medium High School. There are separate hostels for boys and girls of the neighboring villages. Girls’ Hostel is managed by the Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians. The community is also serving the young at risk through a shelter at the Warangal railway station. Those among street children who are interested in studies/learning a skill are brought to Mariapuram for English or Telugu Medium school for education or for Vocational training. The poor women are organized into SHGs and federated into “The Mutually Aided Cooperative Society” (MACS). The society has a thrift and credit programme for the members.

Integral education is given to the young, marginalized youth, rehabilitation for the young at risk through life coping skills and technical training and rural women are empowered for the social transformation in the Diocese of Warangal.”
