Arunachal : Leaving all the comforts of mother land, Kristudasi Sisters set forth to a land which was alien to them in 2012. Holding the name of Jesus they spread Good News, provided moral and human values, educated and healed the people in Dhonekhona, a remote village in Namsai District of Arunachal Pradesh. The people here are belong to Kamti, Adi, Mishing, Miri, Assamese and Adivasi tribes. They are illiterate and poor. Most of the people are farmers.

The very next year, Society of Kristu Dasi sisters joined the mission specially for teaching in the school, and to run a primary health care centre. Two sisters are teaching in the school. Most of the Christian students are given free education in the school. To promote girls' education sisters started hostel for girls.
