Karuna Schechen

Mobile Clinic project In Bihar India - with Karuna Shechen and MAthieu Ricard
Karuna-Shechen began its work in the mid-1980s when Matthieu Ricard (its founder) and Rabjam Rinpoche (co-founder) initiated a number of small programs to improve the living conditions of the Himalayan people.
The programs were designed to address the inequalities and suffering they observed in the region. They were a natural progression of the founders’ dedication to these communities and an expression of altruism in action.
Karuna-Shechen’s activities concentrate on four sectors of intervention: health, education, community development and cultural preservation. Our work continues to expand in all these sectors.
