The community was originated in the small locality name Sangareddy .We were called to Andhra Mission by Society of Divine Word Fathers. It was a collaborative effort and toil together in 1980, May 12 the golden script of origin of Karuna took place. Staying in small rent house the sisters began visiting the families of the nearby places and support them with medical services. In the following year sisters started to teach in the school. Conducted Mother and Child Health programme in the villages and began a training programme in the villages and tailoring center for the young woman , aiming at their empowerment. The following year completed a building quarters for sisters.

                         In response to the need of the locality began a Kinder garden under the protection of Mother of Mercy in 1983.This Karuna K.G school went on successfully for the next 10 years and it was in 1993 we began upgrading the school each year. It is Karuna High School now and is imparting outstanding education infact it has become one of the leading schools in the district and Karuna has proved its efficiency not only in academic level but also in co- curricular activities too.
