A Bit About Us
Fatima Charitable Society Tamil Nadu is a humble initiative of Sisters of Salesian Missionaries of Mary Immaculate to serve the poor, women and underprivileged sections of the society. Based on our past mission experience, we have noticed that most of the rural population especially women, continued to be enslaved by other forms of oppression like abject poverty, caste rivalry, religious bigotry and social exclusion etc. The pathetic state of the rural areas, where few have enjoyed all the comforts, while the most have suffered physical and mental deprivation made us to involve in their life. To enhance human dignity, and concentrate especially on humanitarian activities, the society of Mary Immaculate discerned to form a separate Unit called “Fatima Charitable Society -Tamil Nadu”(FACS) in January 2010. Since its inception, FACS has been engaged in the development and empowerment of women, widows, victims of HIV / AIDS, parentless & neglected girl children, socially and economically weaker and vulnerable segments of the society etc.. Now it is a people-based service organization, extending the livelihood to the poorest of the poor through implementing welfare-oriented and developmental programs, so that they may be able to receive and taste the fruits of these programs, the things that were denied to them and kept beyond their reach.
