Kolping Program

Kolping Program was started in the Archdiocese in the year 1984. The basic principles of Kolping movement are: to be a good Christian, to be a good family member, to be a good worker and to be a good citizen. There are 61 Kolping groups functioning in the Archdiocese. The total number of members are 1096 of whom 430 are male and 666 are female. Basically this is a spiritual movement. Still for the sake of sustainability of the movement the members are motivated to cultivate the habit of saving.

Women members who are mostly from poor agricultural background are confident that rearing of milch animal's will fetch them good income. On survey, it is revealed that on an average a milch animal fetches a minimum of Rs.1500/- per year to a family. Groups of members form a village milk cooperative society which serves as outlets for the milk collected in a particular village. Though the income is minimal, it is regular and helps them to satisfy their basic needs.
