Roshini Nivas – Hostel for young women
We, the Sisters of Good Shepherd Convent, Chennai, had been thinking for some time to have a Hostel for working women of the low income group. Since Eccleston was lying fallow for a good number of years we decided to renovate it for this purpose and named it Roshni Nivas.
The renovation began in 1999 and a two storied building was completed in our Platinum Jubilee year 2000. So on October 1st, the Hostel was blessed with 23 girls. Presently we have 100 hostelities (working women and college students) upto date.
There are also opportunities for personal counselling and discussion and the same are availed of by most of the hostelities
