Success Stories


Miss P's Story

Barely 8 years of age, Miss P lost her parents to misfortune. Her relatives, financially challenged, were unable to support Miss P’s desire to study. To fund her survival, Miss P started working in an Old Age Home. Putting in long hours in the care of the inmates she found it challenging to continue studies. Having learnt about CSS, Miss P decided to turn her life with sheer determination and hard work.

She realized the opportunity to start her life afresh on a clean slate. Completing BSc Nursing from Kamineni College of Nursing, Miss P realized her personal ambition and was thrilled at life’s turn of events. Today she is staffed as a Nurse in the Cardiology Department in Kamineni Super-Speciality Hospital. Miss P feels pride in conferring the awards of her personal and professional achievement to CSS and thank them for the opportunity to lead life on her terms.

Happy times not ending at this, she has a sponsor who is willing to help her find a job in Australia so she can specialize professionally. Becoming self-reliant, Miss P says that she will support one of her sisters back in CSS.


Miss S's Story

Miss S, hailing from Guntur, faced heart wrenching tragedy very early in life. After brutally killing her mother, her father made a run getting caught by the police. With some help from the Uncle, Miss S managed to educate herself until High school. But economical and financial conditions got the better of the already difficult situation, compelling her Uncle to discontinue her studies. Miss S’s zeal to study and educate self, encouraged her Uncle to look for avenues to accomplish this goal. Having heard of CSS from others, her Uncle managed to bring Miss S for admission into the home of CSS. With hard work and perseverance Miss S managed to get a seat in the IT Branch of Srinidhi College of Engineering.

Although, initially, Miss S stayed aloof and seemed insecure, she never let it interfere with her studies. With Gods finally smiling on her, Miss S was recruited into CTS through the Campus Recruitment Cell. She floored the interviewers not only with her knowledge of her subjects but also with her frankness and her acceptance of her background and her will to become good of herself.

Today, Miss S is posted in a city outside Hyderabad. She never forgets to keep in touch with CSS and the other girls there who are her family. She mails them regularly and visits them whenever she is in town.
