grass-roots welfare

Karunalaya was founded as a grass-roots organisation for the welfare of street and working children in Chennai City. They have grown from a small soup kitchen to a large organisation that runs an enormous range of projects and services to meet the care, protection, legal and rehabilitation needs of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and women.

Their central programme focuses on: providing shelter, food, health care, counselling, street-based education and sports programmes, vocational training and family reintegration.

In addition, they provide a dedicated centre for street boys, child labour intervention and prevention teams, support for pavement dwellers and slum dwelling families, HIV testing services and support for young women in the sex industry.

Through this practical, integrated approach and supported by their legal teams, Karunalaya seeks to rebuild and empower communities. They enable them to organise themselves, campaign for their rights, find solutions to problems and bring about social transformation.
