Karuna-Shechen develops and manages humanitarian and development programs that help under-served and disadvantaged communities in northern India, Nepal, and eastern Tibet 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.
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.
With our 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.
Each year, over 380,000 people in the Himalayan regions benefit from our work.
