Our Work

Karuna works largely in India, where hundreds of millions of people suffer lives of grinding poverty and oppression, excluded from the region’s economic boom.

Dalit, Adivasi and other disadvantaged communities struggle as landless day labourers, in constant danger of violence and exploitation, with little or no recourse to the law or police. At best their children receive a few years of substandard schooling. In the teeming cities, such people live in cramped, dirty slum huts, so oppressed by the daily struggle to survive that they can offer little means of escape to their children.

Karuna works with community based organisations that are helping thousands of people to escape the hell of poverty and discrimination and take their rightful place in society.
