Mother Teresa of Calcutta (Madre Teresa di Calcutta) was born in Skopje, in Macedonia, on August 27, 1910, into a wealthy family.

Her real name was Agnès Gonxha Bojaxhiu. When she was 18 years old she became a missionary nun with the name of Sister Teresa. For about 20 years she taught History and Geography in a college for rich girls in Calcutta. However, she realized that there were a lot of poor and sick people who needed assistance and started to help them.
In 1948 Pope Pio XII gave her permission to left the convent for helping homeless people.

In Calcutta she established an outdoor school, under a tree, for poor children. After some time she had a small flat for a nun community. In 1950 she took the name of Mother Teresa, and a lot of projects were carried out. For example, with the help of Pope Paul VI, she built the “Peace Town”, where she helped poor people. In 1979 she won the Nobel Peace Prize. She died in 1997 of a heart attack. Today a lot of people go to India to visit her tomb.
