Amera came into existence as there was a renewed effort of evangelization among the Gond Tribals in Mandla, Betul, Sheoni and Chindwara Districts. Rev. Fr. Francis Britto was visiting the area since there was a catholic family migrated from Mandla Dt. This Parish was started at the request of 5 local panchayats of this area. Fr. Francis Britto was the first priest-in-charge. He started to stay here in June 1982. Fr. Britto succeeded in starting a school inspite of strong opposition. The school has come up to High School level now.A few children are helped by providing accommodation though there is no proper hostel here.
