Infant Jesus High School, Challakere

In February 2005, after extensive study of places of need, the Brothers decided to go to Challakere in rural Karnataka. The first two Brothers to go there were Br Hector Pinto and Jerome Saldanha. They assisted the Ursuline Sisters in running the parish school. Since Br Hector had previous experience of managing a Higher Secondary School, the Bishop requested the Brothers to take responsibility for administering Infant Jesus High School, in 2007. With the Brothers' background in the teaching of English, the High School soon began producing excellent results and has since moved to a new site which has a School and a Brothers' residence.
