20 Years of Altruism in Action

“At Karuna-Shechen, we believe that compassion not only helps us to benefit others, but it is also the most satisfying way to live.” ~Matthieu Ricard

Since Karuna-Shechen began in 2000, we have helped millions of children and their families in hundreds under-served villages in India and Nepal, to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential.

With your generosity, together we can continue to save lives, promote equality, and create sustainable solutions for hundreds of thousands of people every year.

Together — year after year — we embrace opportunities to respond to evolving needs and overcome challenges, ensuring that our efforts continue to make a sustainable, lasting difference and work towards building a better world.


#KarunaTurns20 ! Your generosity makes this beautiful work possible. Thank you for joining us on our journey and supporting our altruistic projects.

more prepared than ever to create a culture of compassion
throughout the world!
