Gorakhpur Region (Diocese) consists of seven civil districts of Gorakhpur and Basti divisions. This region lies in the Himalayan Foothills of Eastern Uttar Pradesh called 'Terai Region' often known as 'Purvanchal'. During British period it enjoyed the status of 'C' class hill station. But due to large denudation of forest area in Gorakhpur division as well as in Nepal, major climatic changes have taken place during the last 30 years. Now during the summer the day temperature shoots up to 450-500 C, making the day hot and humid.
PGSS has concentrated its involvement in the selected villages of 22 development blocks in seven civil districts, namely Gorakhpur, Maharajganj, Deoria, Kushinagar, Basti, Sant Kabir Nagar and Siddharthnagar. In all these blocks activities are centered around our Community Centers (Mission Stations). Only in Desai Deoria block we could reach out to the complete villages. In other blocks we have reached out only 15 to 40 villages each. Each Community Centre usually has a Priest-in-charge, group of Sisters, one primary school, and one dispensary.
Gorakhpur district Coverage blocks: Chargawan, Khairabad and Sardarnagar Maharajganj district Coverage blocks: Nautanwa, Nichlaul and Mithaura
