What is a Karuna Appeal?

Tuesday 3rd March 2020
6:00pm - 6:45pm

Led by Mike Smith.

Inspired by Buddhist values, Karuna exists to end caste-based discrimination, poverty and inequality in India and Nepal. Their work focuses on education, dignified livelihoods and gender equality, transforming communities and changing society.

Karuna’s unique fundraising approach is motivated by Buddhist ethics. They give time and space to people so that they can make a considered, conscious choice to support Karuna’s work.

By practicing patience and compassion, their volunteers recruit new supporters to join Karuna’s work. They fund-raise in a UK town or city for six weeks, living in shared accomodation, eating and meditating together five days a week.

This makes Karuna appeals an opportunity to do something for others as well as with others, deepening one’s spiritual practice within the context of a supportive and like-minded community.

The result is a truly transformative experience for both, the benefit of which is passed on to thousands of people in India and Nepal.

On this evening, Mike Smith from Karuna, will give an informal presentation and answer any questions about what a Karuna Appeal is and what it involves.

Come along if you’re curious! Even if you’re not thinking about doing a Karuna Appeal this year and would just like to know more, feel free to drop in.
