Mrs.Rani Krishnan worked there for 2 years. During her working period for the Chief Minister she always waited for an opportunity to express her desire to dedicate her life to the poor and the needy. Finally she got an opportunity to express her desires to the ruling Chief Minister Thiru M.G.Ramachandran who was amazed to see a young women with such a rare desire and he was very pleased to allocate her a place to start her career as a social worker.

Trust with just 10 children and her family members to support her and give her security from the anonymous troubles given by the village leaders. Slowly as the days passed and latter she realized that it’s a year passed from the day she occupied the land at the Karapakkam village which now takes care of 183 children out of which 62 of them are the Tsunami affected children. This land and the Community were developed by William Lee Pvt Ltd., & Mr. Sree Kumar, at the time of Tsunami, expressing the generosity through supply of Food, Clothing and Shelter.
