The Settlement is situated in an area of about 4 acres behind Don Bosco Hr.Sec.School within the Semmanandal Panchayat limits. The land was bought in 2008, with the contribution of the Salesian Congregation sanctioned by Fr.Francis Alancherry SDB. This was inspired during his visit to the villages, during which he saw the plight of the Thurumbars dispersed in various villages.
The settlement has 48 plots, each having 3.5 cents. Out of the allotted 32 plots to various families, 9 have already put up huts. Regular meeting of the members are held every third sunday of the month. Lack of water and electricity and other infra structure facilities are hindering other families to settle here. We welcome individuals and agencies to contribute towards this creative yet challenging venture. Once the families settle down here, they will be free of the compulsory caste based bonded labour, suffered in their previous villages.
