Karunai Illam Trust

The Karunai Illam Trust is a New Zealand incorporated charitable trust  ( Charities Registration # CC23802). It was set up to support the work of the late Jean Watson, a Wellington writer, who in 1987 established a children’s home in the rural town of Nilakottai, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. 

Our Illam provides a home away from home for young girls and boys. The children come from very disadvantaged families who are unable to financially support their children. They reside at the Illam during the term time and are fully supported with their schooling, residential and extracurricular activity costs met by the Trust.
