After the coffee break ''Mission to Love'' a documentary on Don Bosco was screened for the new students to get acquainted with this genial educator and saint. Fr. Ananda Raj, Programme Co-ordinator thanked everyone for their active participation and preparation of the inauguration programme.  

After the first batch completed the session in the paid mode, Fr. Anandaraj and his team managed to enroll 73 students for the new session with two separate domains of hospitality and food & beverage. The induction classes began on 3rd August and there is already great interest shown on the part of the staff and the students, as all the students of the previous batch have been well placed in different concerns.

BASE was originally a Don Bosco India Project undertaken with funding from the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, under the Swarnajayanthi Gram SwarozgarYojana (SGSY). It was aimed at empowering youth from below poverty line training them in market-driven courses and placing them in entry level opportunities in various sectors.
