India – Mid India Province
Mid India Province was branched out from Central Province, Hazaribag, India and was erected on 15th September 2015. The Province has its head quarter in Raipur, the State Capital of Chhattisgarh. Here is the seat of the first Provincial Administration of the Mid-India Province. At present, we have 20 Communities in three States namely – Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The sisters of the Province work in six different dioceses. They are engaged in education, healing ministry, social work, pastoral work, jail ministry, special education for mentally and physically challenged persons. The sisters also collaborate with groups and organisations that have connatural priorities.
Specific projects or priorities
The communities are situated both in Rural and semi urban areas. The sisters are working mainly with people in backward areas, with socially and economically poor sections of the society. Despite the developments in the country, awareness of the importance of education and health is still lacking among the local population. The main occupation of the people is agriculture. People migrate to metropolitan cities in search of work for their livelihood.
