The Institute of the Carmelite Sisters of St. Teresa (CSST), was founded in 1887
by Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima (a resident of Chennai) in the town of
Ernakulam 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.
Mother Teresa an educationist with a spiritual and social thrust and great zeal,
was convinced that all human beings are children of God with a right to live in
With the first foundation, St. Teresa's convent, Ernakulam she started a school
where all types of students irrespective of their social and financial status were
admitted during the short span of her life as Foundress (1887-1902) she set up an
orphanage for the poor, whom society discarded, and even personally nursed the
sick inmates of the convent during the epidemics at that time. A dispensary,
industrial school and a Home for the aged poor, were also started. She was a
pace setter, who visited even the prison and attended to the spiritual needs of the
prisoner. She brought about liberation from the chains of casteism and poverty.

of education, social and health action.
