A powerful Tamil heritage theater
supported by a grassroots organization
that is a school, a meeting place and a knowledge center.
The Annual Report 2018 | 2019 and a summary of the financial statements of the Kattaikkuttu Sangam & Gurukulam are available here.
This year we plan to further develop our organic Food Forest Garden and are welcoming hands-on volunteers who would like to help us. For questions regarding volunteering, visits, workshops or performances, please contact our office.
The Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam reopened on the 17th of June 2019 with 25 residential students. As the result of a lack of funding, we operate in a reduced format.
The good news is that the Kattaikkuttu Young Professionals Company is in existence and performing, thanks to the welcome initiative of two of our alumni students-cum-apprentices. For upcoming performances, please see the Calender on this page.
All Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam candidates have passed their 10th, 11th and 12th Public Exams. Herewith the school maintains its 100% Pass record. And even more exciting: two of our students have got admission to Ashoka, a leading liberal arts and science university in Haryana near Delhi. A. Bharathi wants to study English and P. Sasikumar Economics. Both intend to continue their acting and music careers by opting for a Performing Arts minor.

We are excited to see how our alumni volunteers and friends are being inspired by Karna’s Eyes, devising different ways and creative means to raise funds for the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam. A bit more than 10 months into the campaign they have raised € 22.027 (or INR 17,22,675). This means that we need only another € 3.000 to reach our target of raising € 25.000 for the school and its students. Thank you all so much for your great efforts!
