Exhibition - Photographs taken by the children of the Karuani Illam Children's Home

The Trustees are so excited to present a photo Exhibition at the Mahara Gallery in Waikanae. Shown for the first time in New Zealand are photographs taken by the children of the Karuani Illam Children's Home - our children. With the help of Mo Greig, a London based Kiwi photographer , these children express their creativity and show us (the adults) how they see their world through a camera lens.

Poverty and illiteracy in India

India is a growing economy. Yet most children get fewer than six years of schooling and one in nine is illiterate. Poor diets mean that 38% of children under the age of five are so underfed as to damage their physical and mental capacity irreversibly, according to the Global Nutrition Report.” – Economist magazine Jan 13-19 2018
