Our Work

girl

Karuna-Shechen develops and manages humanitarian and development programs that help underserved and disadvantaged communities in northern India, Nepal, and easternTibet reach their full potential and create a better future.

We provide vulnerable populations access to health care, education and vocational training, clean water, solar electricity, and other sustainable solutions that support and improve their livelihoods. In 2015, we also brought emergency relief aid to over 216,000 victims of the earthquakes that devastated Nepal.

Our comprehensive development and humanitarian strategy is based on active community participation, women’s empowerment, and the preservation of local natural resources, expertise, and culture. We strive to create projects that are sustainable models so that they can be duplicated and continued in the future without external intervention.

Karuna-Shechen works with local partners and teams to ensure that the programs it develops respond to the specific needs and aspirations of the communities it serves.

With its staff in direct contact with the populations involved in the projects, Karuna-Shechen’s activities have a significant impact on individuals, their families, and their communities. Today, close to 400,000 people in the himalayan regions benefit from our work.
