Social Services

In India and Nepal, Karuna-Shechen initiates and supports sustainable community development programs that empower under-served individuals and communities to transform their lives and become self-sufficient.

In Tibet, our social services include care for those without resources or family, relief for survivors of natural disasters and vocational training.

“When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities.”
- The Dalai Lama
