FIDES – (Family Integral Development and Education Scheme)
FIDES is a charitable organization, initiated by the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco (FMA) of Bangalore Province in the year 1994.

The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, also known as the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco is an International Congregation whose charism is the Christian education and formation of the young people especially the poorest through the educative style of Don Bosco's Preventive System which is based on reason, religion and loving-kindness. The congregation was founded by St. John Bosco and St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello on August 5, 1872 in Mornese, Italy.

This small seed planted in Mornese blossomed into a fruitful tree that has spread its missionary presence in 94 countries all over the world, with nearly 14,000 Sisters (Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice).

In India we have 6 provinces, comprising 180 houses and 1285 Sisters. Our main works are education through schools, Junior Colleges and Vocational Training Centres; Homes for Young at Risk; Faith formation and Evangelization; and Empowerment of women, youth and children through Social Ministry.

We believe that Social Action :

• Is an “expression” of concern for fellow Human Beings
• Is not the ‘end’ but just a ‘means’
• Should result in the ‘HOLISTIC health and development of the COMMUNITY.


Social Action aims at, attainment of :

• Their own Essential Needs’ by the people
• Sustainable financial stability for the people
• Socio-cultural and Environmental Development of the Community.
• And a community of people living in love, joy and peace.
• We call it “FULLNESS OF LIFE”
