The Former Students Federation of Jesuit Schools is a movement of those who have done their studies in any of the Jesuit Institutions. “As far as resources permit, the school will offer guidance and ongoing formation so that those who received basic formation in the school can be more effective in putting their formation into practice in adult life and can continue to deepan their dedication to the service of others” (COJE).
“The Society if ready to assist in every project that Jesuit Association shall undertake, but the initiative and the final responsibility has to remain with former students themselves. We can inspire, we can collaborate but the planning and the responsibility shall be with them”. (Pedro Arruppe)

Aims and Objectives
  1. To imbibe the vision of the Society of Jesus.
  2. To create close bonds of friendship and support between the Jesuit institutions and the former students.
  3. To encourage fellowship among the alumni themselves in order to sustain them to live out their professional lives inspired by the values received in our institutions.
  4. To become deeply involved in the problems of the city in order to make life more just – even getting involved in the political sphere.
  5. To grow in faith that does justice, to become men and women for others and to manifest a particular concern for the poor.
  6. To cast our lot with the 60% of our people who are poor, especially with the Dalits and to join hands with movements that work towards their integral liberation.
