Karuna has contributed to a new report just launched by a group of NGOs. The report has found that caste and other forms of “discrimination based on work and descent” (DWD) continues to be a barrier to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the UN in 2015. This form of discrimination occurs in at least 20 countries and is often associated with slavery.
Karuna is looking for regional door-to-door fundraisers in the major towns and cities in the UK. Maybe you’ve participated in a Karuna appeal and are looking for meaningful work that promotes engaged buddhist values?
Regional door-to-door fundraisers work 4 evenings a week (£24,000 PA on target earnings).
If you are interested in working for a team-based right livelihood from your home town please do get in touch with sanghanath [at] karuna.org
