ST. JOSEPH BOYS’ HOME - KATPADI

 History of the House

Inaugurated on October 25, 1953, St. Joseph Boys’ Home and Industrial School
was begun by Rev. Fr. Hugh Tuena sdb (1906-1966), as a shelter home for the
orphans and neglected youth of Vellore Diocese of Tamil Nadu. It provides
technical training (formal and non-formal) in Carpentry, Tailoring, Welding,
Electrician, Auto-Mechanic and Brass Band for the school dropouts and poor
young boys. Skill training in Carpentry [Certificate course from the State
Government of Tamil Nadu] is a three-year programme benefitting 22 boys every
year. The Auto-Mechanic section was opened on December 8, 1976 with fifteen
students. To address the rapid growth and demand for this trade, in 1982 a new
shed was constructed for this section.
