The land at Pothuvai village Ginjee taluk of Villupuram district was bought in 2007, with the generous help of Ms.Laura Cappelletti introduced by Fr.Britto Berchmans. It was her contribution in honour of her deceased mother Willie. The 1.80 acre of land is adjacent to the Siluvai Malai(Hillock of the Cross) between Pothuvai village and Vettavalam.
In 2009, Sadhaana Public Charitable Trust founded by Anjali (Loretta), came forward to level the ground, sink a borewell and construct 20 thatched huts. Hence, 35 plots were made with each site having 3.5 cents, a borewell and a hand pump was put up and 20 huts were constructed and allotted to families. Eleven families were given Pattah(legal ownership), along with the well-constructed thatched houses. Two Solar street lights were set up with Fr.Britto’s help. Later, the Panchayat administration set up the street lights and sunk a second borewell and put up a mini tank.
Remoteness of the area, lack of water and other local issues have hampered the realization of a full fledged settlement.
