Extension Services

Don Bosco College has been serving the rural and poor people since 2007 and enormously seeking for the upliftment of poor and down trodden people in Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri districts. With the help of local leaders, the service to the needy has been carried out. As a result, young people join the College studies and become self-sustainable and self-reliant. Many of our students had been employed by various companies and now they have become economically sound and self-sustainable.

(1) Bodhi Maram – educating the children,
