"Breaking the cycle of poverty through education" is our goal.

This is a new website being developed following a change of platform by our previous supplier Easily without any migration facility. So we are sorry we can't reproduce the many diary entries charting the progress made. We have summarised the first 10 years and taken the opportunity to improve the information provided and the presentation.

We hope you will find it interesting and helpful

Karun Update April 2021

The Breakthrough Trustees very much appreciate your continued financial support during this very difficult period of Covid here and in India. Whilst the school is closed staff and the local administrator have had an opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved and consider the future direction of Karun. 

 

Trustees continue to be in regular contact with Karun and are well informed about the local Covid situation as well as Government arrangements for reopening schools.  In Tamilnadu although at present shops, transport and other public services are functioning there is great concern at the rising Covid numbers in the state and across India.

Karun still does not have any official information from the government on the date for the reopening of the school.  Normally the school year ends in April and reopens in the first week of June.

 

We are delighted that Sewing classes and work on the garden continue - See NEWS for more details.
