Karuna-Shechen removes stigmas and breaks taboos about what rural women can and cannot do. As the Dalai Lama often points out, we need empathy, altruism and compassion more than ever, so it’s time to enter the ‟age of the woman.”
Founder of Karuna-Shechen
When women of all ages receive training and education, their families and entire communities benefit. Our projects work with the needs and aspirations of villagers to create opportunities that reduce poverty and inequality, creating a more altruistic world.

Breaking gender barriers and overcoming taboos, women become respected members of their community and serve as role models for girls in their village.
