In India, Karuna-Shechen has operated as a humanitarian agency in the state of Bihar for the last twelve years. At the end of 2013, it was decided to expand our activities into other regions of India ...
Karuna-Shechen has initiated and managed over 130 humanitarian projects in India, Nepal, and Tibet. Over twenty years of experience has allowed us to establish a collaborative team of professionals who work within local communities to identity and implement projects that respond directly to their needs. Even in adverse political situations, our projects have continued to thrive because they are community-based in scale and focus.
Our projects range from clinics in the remote highlands of Tibet to medical outreach programs in the slums of Kathmandu, from a school in the mountains of Nepal to training in solar engineering for illiterate village women in India. Our beneficiaries have little or no access to health care or education and live in communities that are in great need of our services.
