Our Founder– Mother Teresa of St.Rose of Lima
The tale of this extraordinary institution began with the birth of an extraordinary human being – She was Mary Grace born in Madras, South India on January 29th 1859.
A legend who opened up a new and glorious page for Indian women.
Being a woman of substance and perseverance Mary Grace thinking far ahead of her times took a leap of faith – her milestone achievement being her tryst with education. She used learning as a weapon, a tool that enabled girl children to become leaders and strong, upright citizens. Deeply involved in spreading the light of God’s love through her quest for human rights, for caste reconciliation , for gender justice, and for social justice – envisioning a new generation and a new world, her commitment towards women’s education was truly monumental. Such has been her wisdom, the deftness of her many operations, such the potency of her timing that we now celebrate her covenant with God in the words Amazing Grace.
Indeed Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima formerly Mary Grace with prodigious courage, spearheaded a new dawn. Several of her initiatives, innovations and achievements in education and social advancement have assumed prophetic character in the presently changing national and global scenario.
