1. The girl students are trained to be good women in the family and society through counseling, carrier guidance and sex education given to the outgoing students.  Talks given on healthy friendships have helped them to interact as brothers and sisters in the classroom. Workshops are a regular feature in many of the institutions to build self confidence and to guide the students to choose their careers.




2, The Women’s Centre ‘Sumangala’ of St. Agnes College is doing a great service for the past ten years through its Women’s Studies Centre to educate destitute women; free short-term courses of three months’ duration are held for school and college drop outs to give them employable skills. The Centre organizes certificate courses, conducts minor research projects pertaining to women’s security, crime and education.



3. The College organizes workshops for students on ‘Women’s Empowerment through Street Plays’. Teams of Resource Persons animate the groups and they perform at street junctions. Child Abuse, Rape, Crimes against Women and Children, Children’s Rights and Women’s Education were some of the topics enacted to empower women.


4. The women in 79 Sanghas (SHG) are very enthusiastic to celebrate Women’s Day at Bidar. Talks are arranged for them; they perform dances and skits based on women – related issues. There is also one SHG for men. Senior Citizens’ Day, St. Martha’s Day and Grandparents’ Day are celebrated in some of our institutions.
