Social Services in Tibet

Providing the under-served populations of Tibet with elder care, disaster relief assistance and vocational training opportunities.

In Tibet, Karuna-Shechen initiates and supports a number of social programs to help under-served individuals and communities. Our social services include care for elders and relief for survivors of natural disasters. We also offer vocational training programs that include weaving, pottery, tailoring, Tibetan medicine, thangka painting, wood-carving, incense making, and midwifery.

The overall situation in Tibet for NGOs continues to present numerous challenges, especially for the people in the field. In response to this sensitive situation, it has become necessary for us to limit our reporting. However, if you are interested in these projects we will be happy to share information with you on an individual basis.
