History of the House

Don Bosco Boys' home, Thattanchavady is a home for the orphans, destitute, school dropouts, street children and young at risk. This Don Bosco Boys’ Home is a public welfare, service oriented, non-profitable institution started in
the year 1986 for the School dropouts in and around Pondicherry and the nearby villages. This home s dedicated for the School dropouts irrespective of caste, creed and color. It accepts them with an open arm and gives them Education, guidance, love, attention and calls for their individual capacity and inclination. Not only we provide them with their educational needs but also provide them with food, shelter and cloths. This home is the innovative  approach to link these dropout children once again to the education streamline. This will help him to adopt a method suitable to his age and mental make up so that he could again get back to the formal learning. Besides imparting education we also take care in the all-round formation of the child with healthy and sound environment. Started as a unit of the Young at Risk programme, this institute continues to address the problem of children turning into the streets by preventing school dropouts and enables them to settle down in life.
