Action for Karuna is back from May 24 to 30!

When altruists join forces, they can generate tremendous power for good ~ Matthieu Ricard

The entire Karuna team invites you to join us from May 24 to 30 for a week of solidarity with Action for Karuna.

All those who wish to do so can launch their own solidarity initiative in order to share this altruistic state of mind and raise funds: share your passions or take advantage of an existing event to give it even more meaning!

The funds raised will help support 17 education child development centers in Nepal and create a joyful and favorable environment for the development of children. You can learn more about this program by reading this article.

Together, let's empower women to become leaders for change!

You can also participate in the workshops and solidarity events LIVE on Karuna's social network pages, organized by friends of the association: a meditation for young and old, a yoga class, a concert and even a virtual photo exhibition! Discover the entire program here.
