“karuna” is a Sanskrit word that means the compassionate and selfless desire to remove suffering.
It is this central concept of compassion that is the heartbeat of our social enterprise. We believe that human beings have unbound potential that can be unleashed by compassion.
10% of all revenue from karuna and 100% of profits are donated to The Karuna Happiness Foundation, whose mission is to empower women, youth and children who have suffered unspeakable abuse, trafficking, abandonment and other societal ills so they may be able to break the vicious cycles of poverty and abuse.
