Dourdan in Bangalore is a community in the midst of hustle and bustle of a busy town area of Indiranagar, in Bangalore.
This community was born on May 31, 2010 out of the generosity of Mr. Albert Royan, a widower with no one to inherit his property offered it for the congregation for the purpose of social services. A sewing centre was soon inaugurated in the spirit of Marie Poussepin to teach poor girls so that they could earn a living. Mr. Albert Royan passed away on January 6, 2013 and the whole house is available for the social services.
Sisters collaborate with the neighboring parishes in the pastoral ministry as Eucharistic ministers and catechism teachers. Visiting the homes of the families around specially of the elderly and sick is part of their ministry
A tailoring Centre provides possibility for women to learn to stitch women’s clothes, which in turn enable them to earn their livelihood. Many women have benefited from this service. A unit of making sports garments is an opportunity for those who work there to earn an income for themselves.
The Day Care “PATH” ( Poussepin @ Any Time Help) provides a safe and comfortable shelter for the poor elderly and disabled women of surrounding slums and they also enjoy good meals while they are in the centre. This facility makes it possible for the family members to go for work during the day with the assurance that their mothers are in a safe place while they are away from home. It is also a centre that links its mission to other organizations by networking.
