We first started our work in the slums of Chennai in 1984.  We had a home for children and school in Perambur, Chennai.  We worked with babies who needed care and nutrition.  We also worked for the upliftment of deserted women and elders.  We started a primary and middle school in Chennai.  Our work did not remain in the slums.  We reached out to the villages up to Thiruvallur District.  At that time, the caste system was in its height.  We started our work with Dalits.  We cared for the poor higher caste people as well.  The scheduled castes were partially bonded ad suffered a lot at the hands of higher caste people.  We conducted dialogues with both these caste people which brought them together, gave understanding and brought happiness, breaking the wall of hostility thereby releasing them from bondage.

As years passed by they became very friendly and helped each other.  There was no child going to school in the village of Katchur.  We made the children go to the school.  So we started a primary school.  We brought in sanitation and hygiene.  We provided drinking water to the village and power supply to all the houses in the village.  We gave them milch animals for each household in the village.  We repaired the huts and removed the untouchability.  We conducted mass rally for the elders to create awareness on their rights.  We treated more than 500 polio children giving them calipers boots.  Surgical corrections were performed to 320 polio affected children free of cost in Private Nursing Home and we followed them to continue their education.

Professor Dr. Paul F. Knitter Xavier University, U S A in his book on “One Earth Many Religions” published 1995 page 176 – 179 mentioned.

“In the little village of Katchur, on the outskirts of Madras, is an organization called Share and Care Children’s Welfare Society.  It is directed by a Roman Catholic married couple, Carmel and Steven Arokiasamy.  There I found in seedling from a basic human community that marvelously combined a passionate preferential option for the oppressed with the ability to reach out to and love the oppressors.  Steven and Carmel imbibed both their passion for justice and their commitment to nonviolence.   Such a transaction and cooperative gesture had never happened before in Katchur.  The nonviolence that characterizes the interreligious praxis and dialogue in the community is bearing fruits of conversion (not to Christianity) and socioeconomic betterment.”

In Kancheepuram district we built 150 toilets in Nainarkuppam village and started a non formal centre.  Through our sanitation programme we gave awareness programmes how to use toilets and follow good hygiene.  We planted coconut trees and installed taps for the development of this fishing village.  We started a non formal centre and later a tuition centre.

During the Tsunami, we conducted health programme, health camp and rehabilitated many families and providing them domestic items stoves, utensils and necessities, clothes, provisions, recreational items, etc.
