Budni and Bhopal, India
The sisters in Budni and Bhopal, India, need to install solar panels that will provide a steady supply of electricity. At St. Francis School in Budni, there is no power for much of the day, leaving the students without lights or computer access. At our convent in Bhopal, which serves as headquarters for the province, the heat during summer meetings becomes unbearable. Solar panels would permit the use of electric fans to provide some relief. Because of the sunny climate in India, solar panels are an ideal source of sustainable and low-cost energy.

The sisters in Raisen, India, are beginning the process of constructing a new convent. In this area where water is scarce, a borewell must be dug first in order to supply the convent with water for everyday living and agricultural needs. Once it is completed, the sisters will be able to cultivate gardens to grow vegetables for themselves and those living in surrounding areas.
