Inspired by Buddhist values, we exist to end caste-based discrimination, poverty and inequality in India and Nepal.
Our work with individuals focuses on education, dignified livelihoods and gender equality, transforming communities and changing society.
Since 1980, Karuna and its supporters have enabled people to overcome caste discrimination, finally gaining their own dignity and realising their potential as human beings. Based in the UK, we work with in-country partners towards achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals of eliminating inequality, ensuring access to humane and decent work and basic education for all - with no-one left behind.
All of this is only possible because of the generosity of Karuna supporters.
