A SUSTAINABLE AND LASTING IMPACT
Your recurring monthly donations make a sustainable and lasting impact on the lives of thousands of vulnerable people in India, Nepal, and Tibet, and provide us with a consistent source of funding to support our continuing activities.
“By contributing on a regular basis, donors allow us to plan our projects more efficiently for the long-term,” explains Sébastien Pais de Figueiredo, Donor Relations Coordinator for Europe.
Providing communities with the knowledge and tools they need to become self-sufficient is a long-term goal that takes time to accomplish. With your recurring commitment, we can move ahead and make these projects sustainable.
“Our objective is not only to address the immediate needs of the communities, but also to help villagers develop skills and resources to become self-sufficient.” Shamsul Akhtar, the India Director of Karuna-Shechen India.
BECOME PART OF OUR WORK
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. All these elements are closely interdependent and each of them plays an irreplaceable role.”
Your donations, large and small, recurring and one-time, provide the resources to create lasting change.
Support us and join the special group of donors who are central to our work. Thank you and happy holidays.
