Vijaymari Technical Institute, Mangaluru

The brain child behind the starting of Vijaymari Technical Institute was the then Superior General Mother M. Theodosia who wanted to provide several opportunities for the benefit of young Catholic girls/others who emerge out of High schools in DK and are eager to take up some profession that would enable them to learn and earn and supplement their family income. Mother Theodosia realized that these promising young girls were at the same time, subject to moral danger especially when they had no other option but to leave Mangalore to find better jobs in cities like Mumbai and hence decided to open this institute.

Sr. M. Valerie and Sr. M. Rosetta were sent to Cody International Institute, Canada for Social Leadership Diploma Course.  MISEREOR, the Catholic Bishops Organization of W. Germany helped in their education and gave a grant for the building and equipment.  VTI was blessed by Monsgr. James Knox, Internuncio of India on 10th May 1965 and it began to function with 26 students.  

Since there was no Vocational Training School, many rural girls and some from the town plunged into the working world just after their High School.  Naturally they did not have professional competence to face the challenges of life. VTI empowered them, training them in vocational subjects with Sisters Valerie and Rosetta at the helm of Vijaymari Technical School. Two year certificate courses in English Shorthand and English Typing and Tailoring were offered.  In a short time other courses such as Accountancy and Book Keeping, Spoken English, Poultry, Animal Husbandry and Horticulture, Tally and other Computer Courses and Office Practice were added.   

Over 3,000 young women have gone through the portals of VTI and have secured jobs in various Institutions and companies, as office assistants, stenos, craft and K.G. teachers, rendering service with efficiency and love. Vijaymari Technical Institute offers “A Home away from Home” for the trainees and the economically poor High School, P.U.C., and college students and working women.    Indeed Vijaymarians receive all round training from a dedicated staff!
