Socially Displaced Girls

“No one leaves home

unless home is the mouth of a shark.”

While working for the physically and mentally retarded children was routine at Dar-ul-Sukun, it was noticed that number of admissions were sought by normal girls who were from broken families and were had no shelter. So Sr. Gertrude Lemmens realized that there must be a separate home for the socially displaced girls. Janivelle therefore came into existence in 1981 as a natural response to a genuine social need to cater these girls.

Presently, a purposeful renovation and construction at Muslimabad accommodates more than 40 girls with, First of all, secure, healthy and growing atmosphere under the supervision of sisters and trained female staff. Their Schooling and educational expertise are the basic objectives of the organization where as we feel pride in mentioning that institution has enabled several girls in getting education to help them manage their lives with ease and decency. There are few girls who are doing lucrative jobs in different sectors of society. They has learnt from their past and they have proved that they could also be good mothers and good wives while being earning members of their families.
