THE AGNEL MOVEMENT
A vision to foster love and understanding among the various communities in India and also to contribute to development and self-reliance through education, turned into a reality when on the 9th of June 1957, the Fr. Agnel Ashram was established at Lands’ End Bandra in Mumbai. Under the inspiration and guidance of the founder Fr. C. Rodrigues and a dedicated few, the movement started with an orphanage and a trade school in carpentry. Today this movement has grown from a humble beginning to a universal family. Under the guidance of Agnel Ashram Fathers, it caters to full-fledged schools, industrial training centers, polytechnics, engineering colleges at the bachelor and post graduate levels and a School of Management and has spread its wings with large technical complexes at Bandra in Mumbai, Verna in Goa, New Delhi, Noida, Ambernath, Vashi in Navi Mumbai and in Pune.
