Empowering Women - Making Dreams Come True
Loreto College has made a pioneering contribution of empowering women from the weaker sections through education. 20 years ago, these girls were taught basic language skills in Hindi and English. Now they appear for the Secondary (Class X) and Senior Secondary (Class XII) Board Examinations conducted by National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). It is a matter of pride that many proceed to earn a B.A. Degree from Loreto College.
These young confident young women enjoy a good level of economic independence by working as teachers, shop assistants or by selling craft items they make by hand. Their association with Loreto encourages them to learn the importance of discipline, good behaviour and a sense of responsibility. Our girls become an asset to their families and the community.
