Each year a select number of girls are taken into the organization and provided free education, accommodation and other basic amenities to enable them to lead a dignified life. We use the following criteria for selection:
Orphan or semi-orphan girl, coming from an economically needy family.
The girl should have the perseverance to improve.
Each girl’s socio-economic and educational background is carefully scrutinized before admission is done. According to their aptitude and capability, the girls are enrolled in different courses such as engineering, medicine, commerce, and vocational courses. These girls are provided free accommodation, food, college fee, bus passes, hostel expenses, stationery, and books. For deserving students, coaching for competitive exams like EAMCET is also provided. CSS started with strength of 6 girls which has now grown to 70 girls studying in various disciplines.
All the expenditure of the residential girls for food, clothing, shelter, education, medical and incidentals are met by CSS. Girls who are good in academics are encouraged to reach their potential but those who are not academically inclined are not discouraged from getting admitted into CSS. Our doors are always open to an orphan girl irrespective of academic achievements. CSS strongly feels that every child has unique abilities and when properly trained in various vocational courses they too will be able to lead a dignified life and make a success of their chosen career.
Girls at Centre for Social Service found a benevolent sister in Ms Shobha Tummala, BE (Michigan State University), MBA (Harvard Business School), founder and CEO of ‘Shobha’, Michigan, USA.
She has fused her Indian heritage and her goal of natural beauty into her wholesome brand ‘Shobha’. She envisions superior quality not only for services and products for her clients. May be it is this vision and compassion that motivated her to improve the quality of young lives in India also. She came forward with a donation to reimburse a part of the expenditure for the construction of the CSS residential home. A plaque has been inscribed and fixed in the building to honor Ms Shobha and her grandparents In recognition of her support to CSS.
