“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that” Martin Luther King Jr. These words rang true as the IBVM and CJ sisters collaborated to host the very first Mary Ward JPIC South Asia General Meet from 15 to 17 th January, 2021 creating a milestone. They ignited and enriched many, who were a part of the three days’ meeting. There were as many as 365 students from 45 schools, who participated in the event. This historic conclave helped the CJ and IBVM sisters, teachers and students to learn and grow together as they were rooted in the same cause, responded together and made the meeting relevant.
At the conclusion of the Mary Ward JPIC South Asia General Meet from 15th to 17th January 2021, it was decided that the Mary Ward Schools (i.e., all CJ and Loreto schools) would adopt the following goals and meet their objectives by September 2024.
1. Gender and Water Audit through a survey conducted by the students and the staff of all institution.
2. Adopt the green campus program in all institutions and contribute to the SDG.
