Das Karuna-Team

Karuna Deutschland e.V. in Essen

Most of the tasks in the association are done on a voluntary basis. Bookkeeping, website maintenance, general administration, public relations, newsletters, etc. are part of it. Through the close cooperation with the Karuna Trust we can guarantee the project management together, which is a great synergy effect.

The team of volunteers meets monthly in the Buddhist Center Essen and discusses information events, fundraising campaigns, stands, lectures and other things.

Of course, the situation of our projects is also a regular topic.

At the meetings you will learn about the latest news about the projects and you can use your ideas and talents to improve the lives of socially disadvantaged people in India and Nepal. You are very welcome!
