Visit to Khatkhati, Assam

Situated a few kilometres away from Dimapur city, Khatkhati is blessed with peaceful environment and good road. Youth Dept. of Salesian College of Higher Education (SCHE) has a long- standing collaboration with the villagers and its youth of St. Ann’s Church.The youth dept. reaches out to 30 families, 15 youths and 26 kids.

In 1992, 20 families settled down in this area and build a place of worship. The Church now prepares for its Silver Jubilee on 23rd April 2017. Residential students of SCHE (Brothers) are helping them in planning and preparation of the programme for the same.

Some of the activities that are carried out there are: family visits, praying for the families, spoken English, value education, songs and games.

In my visit, we covered up 27 families and interacted with them. The people and youth are warm hearted and cordial. It is a great joy to see young students in their humble way trying to contribute to the well-being of the society.
