We have students from many North Karnataka districts namely Raichur, Bellary, Bijapur, Bidar and Koppal.True to the motto "Reaching the unreached" the hostel has been catering to the needs of the poor Dalit children. They are formed in Jesuit values, making them men and women for others. Thanks to the benefactors for their constant support in the venture. These chidlren are trained in skills besides academics. Our hostel children are easily recognised by people outside by their leadership qualities and English. When they pass out of this institution we feel happy that these children of ours are capable to face the new challenges.
Many of our Hostel Childrens' parents are uneducated. They feel proud to see their children speaking in English and grow as matured human persons. One parent says that this hostel is a heaven for her children because she can go for work leaving the children in the hostel and earn her livelihood. So Loyola Hostel in Manvi is a beacon of hope for many children of poor background of North Karnataka.
