Already 48 committed transmitters of altruism 
 7 340 € collected!



«  When altruistic persons act together, they can generate tremendous power for good. (...) Everyone can mobilize in their own way and cultivate an altruistic state of mind to become a link in the immense chain of solidarity that transcends borders, castes, genders and religions."

~ Matthieu Ricard, founder of Karuna-Shechen


The concept

Karuna-Shechen advocates and acts for a more altruistic world. The Action For Karuna movement
unites all those who want to participate in this vision and share an altruistic mindset.

How to take part

Eeveryone can participate in their own way according to their creativity and talents.
Alone or in a group, imagine a solidarity project, set up a collection to bring in donations, unite your friends and family and share your altruistic aspirations.

The only limit is your creativity: solidarity course, student initiative,
sports challenge, teambuilding event...


COVID-19: If you are unable to organize an event in a physical location, transform your project to run it online! You can organize your workshop on Zoom, Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, Skype... use our manuals for guidance!

The project in Nepal we support

Since 2000, Karuna-Shechen has been active in remote rural areas in Nepal helping
tens of thousands of people improve their quality of life. 


This year, donations collected by Action For Karuna will go to a rural electrification project for 600 households in Nepal, with solar panels installed and maintained by women trained by the association.
A project that is respectful of health and the environment and which reinforces the role of women in society.




What we've accomplished

In 2018 and 2019, Karuna-Shechen started Yoga for Karuna. Last year, it brought together more than 100 yoga teachers, 1,000 practitioners and about 20 partners arount solidarity yoga classes.
More than 50,000€ were collected for 
Karuna-Shechen's development projects iIndia, the cradle of yoga.

In 2020, we want to open this event to more fields and draw on the creativity of everyone,
in order to unite those who whish to actively build a more altruistic world.
