It is managed by the society of Northern Province of Carmelite Sisters of St. Teresa, registered in M.P. under the Madhya Pradesh Societies, Registration Act 1959. The institute of the Carmelites Sisters of St. Teresa (CSST) was founded in 1887 by Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima in the town of Ernakulum in Kerala. It was a time when the vast majority of people were living in squalor and misery, and the poor were compelled to beg on the streets to earn a living. A caste-ridden society was the order of the day.
An educationist with a spiritual and social thrust and great zeal, Mother Teresa was convinced that all human beings are children of God, with a right to live in dignity. Imbued by her spirit, Carmelite Sisters of St. Teresa serve in the field of education, social and health action.
