Supplementary Education

JCI ensures that quality education reaches to the deprived and excluded communities, in the difficult to reach areas of the country. JCI promotes ‘SANKALP’, an education and empowerment accompaniment programme, through innovative learning enhancement centres (LEC).  Through this programme currently, we reach out to over 1 lakh children and youth from various marginalised communities.

Vocational Education

JCI objective to mainstream the youth into the organised job market is achieved through 29 technical training institutes across the country. These training institutes provide formal training in mechanical courses like Fitters, Welders, Electrician, Automobile Mechanic etc. They keep abreast with the changing demands of the market and are with both central and state government recognition. Reaching out to the youth is a major commitment of the Jesuits.

Ecology and Environment

JCI has been progressively engaged in preserving and conserving the ecology and environment through different programmes spread across. The programmes are focused on research, campaigns, biodiversity conservation, natural resource management, renewable energy, preservation of endangered species, eco-spirituality etc. We have reached out to over 3 lakh children and youth, 60 thousand small and marginal farmers.
