Our work

Karuna Deutschland e.V. is a non-profit organisation aiming at improving the living situation of most disadvantaged and poorest people.

In cooperation with our local project partners we help people to help themselves. Our projects enable people to master and improve their lives with regard to health care, education and self-determination.

We support people in re-establishing their dignity and self confidence and encourage them to stand up for their rights. In doing so, we put emphasis on the fact that each project is designed sustainably and becomes independent from outside within a foreseeable period of time.

Karuna Deutschland was established by German Buddhists. However, the supported projects are open to anyone, regardless of his or her cultural or religious background. We cooperate closely with Karuna Trust in Great Britain (www.karuna.org) which has been financing humanitarian projects for over 30 years in India and other South-Asian countries.
