Karuna is 35!

Karuna is 35!

By Munisha on Sat, 28 Nov, 2015 - 23:09

Karuna Trust helps some of India’s poorest people lift themselves out of poverty, including low-caste (Dalit and Tribal) people. This Triratna institution began in very grassroots fashion but was legally constituted as a charity in April 1980 - which means Karuna is officially 35 years old this year!

Karuna is largely funded by Triratna teams conducting door-to-door fundraising campaigns, mostly in Britain. In this latest NewsByte video from Clear Vision, we see another of their teams at work on a telephone fundraising campaign (5.5 minutes).
