A SUSTAINABLE AND LASTING IMPACT

Thanks to your monthly donations, our field teams can plan for the construction of a new school, the solar electrification of villages, the additional mobile clinics, and other exciting KS projects.
As our co-founder Matthieu Ricard explains: “Our work seamlessly brings together the generosity of those who support us, the dedication of those who implement the projects, and the active participation of those who benefit from them.

Your donations, large and small, recurring and one-time, provide the resources to create lasting change.
