Kaakkum Karangal

Full Description


Kaakkum Karangal is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-profit; institution established in February 1992 with the aim of providing home for the homeless. This institution today shelters destitute men and women, differently abled children and old people who have been orphaned and forsaken with sky high ambitions to enlarge its scope and scale of services to larger number of people.

“Kaakkum Karangal” provides residential care to people who have been deserted and works on their rehabilitation as we strongly believe that love and care plays a very important role in bringing them back to a normal life. Medical assistance is provided to ensure faster recuperation.
Our team does their best in creating an environment where the residents feel happy and secure. People from different diversity and background learn to live in shared arrangement promoting friendship and harmony making this a place to live.

While we realize that the greatest commendation is what we hear from our residents as well as the workers, we have received several awards, commendations recognizing our signal services to the destitute children, women and elders. These do motivate us to scale up our operations to serve larger and larger number of the destitute in the society.

A few awards we have received are presented hereunder
