Our Beacon-- Our Mother: ISMS Foundation: A Christian with Portuguese spirit of conquering, married to a Hindu lived her whole life with values and principles from which she never wavered. Her warmth made her an extra ordinary woman with lot of affection, care and kindness towards less privileged ones especially children and woman. Born to a rich father never deviated her spirit from looking beyond her courtyards. Her mind always had keen focus on her purpose i.e “giving”.
She was the force and vision behind ISMS Bangalore. Mom made us enter the world of entrepreneurship with a noble purpose of educating young minds with Indian wisdom along with Western Expertise. So we do the service of educating in simple but efficient way , and though it is small in approach but matters BIG to those who receive it.
In words of Mother Teresa:” We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
