Katamba Farm, Vadodara

Children of the school ready to go home after the school.
 Children of migrant workers from Vadodara, Gujarat,India are educated in a school run by the Jesuits at Katamba Farm.
Fr jolly Nadukudiyil sj is in charge of the farm and the school. Rickshaws bring the students from the city to the school every day. It is a great service done to these children who otherwise would remain uneducated for life. The farm received water from the Narmada River project of the government and is transformed in a few years into a lovely garden with large fish ponds and green trees. Jepasa [ Jesuits in Pastoral Apostolate ] members who met at Jeevandarshan,Vadodara for a sharing visited the farm on 18th Dec 2010 and spend a lovely evening there.
