Karna’s Eyes

Fundraising for the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam

Follow Karna on his world-wide travels in support of a future generation of young Kattaikkuttu performers

We are excited to see how our alumni volunteers are being inspired by Karna’s Eyes, devising different ways and creative means to raise funds for the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam. Half-way into the campaign they have now raised almost half of the target amount of Euro 25.000. Thank you so much for your efforts and your continued passion for the school and its students!

Karna is in the United States of America where will be hosted by a number of alumni volunteers and friends of the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam. His first stay is with Katie Miss (Katie Norman). She’s acting with the Optimist Theatre's Free Shakespeare in Milwaukee and Karna is accompanying her — hoping that the Festival visitors will notice him, too, and will be willing to contribute to his cause!
