Haldner came by jeep. Soon he set up residence and built a hostel for boys, and invited the Sisters of Mary in 1972 to collaborate in the work of the Missions who continue their excellent work to this day.
As of today, the parish has a boarding for boys; the Helpers of Mary Sisters conduct social work, mahila mandals, a girls’ boarding with non-formal tailoring classes for school-dropouts, and since the past few years, road side workshops towards self-employment for school-dropout boys are set up.
