Karuna, Stockholm and a very "Big Give"

By Munisha on Wed, 11 Dec, 2013 - 17:45Karuna Trust announces the result of their participation in the UK’s The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2013, in which teams of philanthropists have donated £10 million in matched funding for a variety of good causes.

Karuna Trust seeks newsletter designer

By lokabandhu on Fri, 6 Dec, 2013 - 12:47Could you be the Karuna Trust’s next newsletter designer…..?

Every year Karuna sends an annual newsletter to 7300 Karuna supporters.

In this year’s newsletter, you’ll meet Mahesh Pednekar. He is so grateful for the care, education and encouragement he received at our hostel in Goa. Mahesh’s ‘untouchable status’ meant he had to overcome great hardship, to become a dentist. Since 1984 we’ve been able to send over 10,000 people like Mahesh to school.
