WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP?

 

Karuna Deutschland e.V. works in India and Nepal, where millions of people suffer from grinding poverty and oppression, often excluded from the region’s economic boom.

Those who are most affected are known as Dalits, literally meaning “broken people”. They  are placed at the bottom of the hierarchical caste system which is pre-determined by birth. They are forced to do the most degrading and humiliating work, such as cleaning toilet pits of whole villages or clearing away carcasses. Thus they are considered “impure” and therefore “untouchable”.

Dalit children and women are particularly at risk. Women face double discrimination due to their gender and caste, with some being taken out of school at an early age to be sold into marriage. Some are forced into the drudgery of household services thus undermining their freedom and independence. 

We support people to help themselves. Hence we work together with partner organisations in India and Nepal. They are familiar with the local context and are trusted by the people. Our projects empower people to take control of their lives as well as improve their living conditions with regard to education, self determination and healthcare.
