Welcome to Karunika Foundation

Karunika Foundation is a humanitarian and educational institution for children situated in Nepal.

It was created to bring help to children derived from the poorest material and social environments.

Karunika cares for over seven hundred children (2023) in 5 districts in Nepal and delivers daily educational support, mid-day school meals, and other live supporting materials like seasonal and school dress.

The stationary facility in Pharping, Kathmandu, Nepal, carries 15 children.

It provides them with meals and supports children with correct development, fulfilling the role of a second home. 

The first Karunika facility, established in 2012, is in Pharping.  It is called Karunika Tuition Center and is registered as an educational institution. 

In 2021, in connection with the development, the Karunika Foundation was registered, creating the basis for wider helping actions. 

The most significant impact of bringing help is the program Family by Heart, which lets us take long-term care of a child from an unprivileged background. It results in radical changes into a better life and determines a stable and promising future. 

Another program saving lives and supporting children's education is the Mid-day food meal. 

Karunika runs and supports a couple of hundred children, providing nutritious hot meals yearly. 



Our Mission:

At Karunika Foundation, we are deeply committed to lighting the path of education for underprivileged children in Nepal. We believe every child deserves a fair chance at education, no matter their background. By addressing their immediate needs and supporting their educational journey, we aim to empower these young minds to break free from the cycle of poverty.

What We Do:

  1. Educational Support: Education is a beacon of hope. We provide essential educational tools and support to children, ensuring they can fully participate and succeed in their schooling.

  2. Daily Nutritional Meals: Nourishing the body is just as crucial as nourishing the mind. We are proud to serve mid-day meals to over 700 children daily, ensuring they receive the vital nutrients to stay healthy and focused.

  3. Holistic Child Development: Beyond just academics, we support children's overall development and growth, ensuring they have all they need to thrive in their formative years.

  4. Humanitarian Projects: We passionately run humanitarian projects aimed at improving human well-being. Our goal is to ensure every individual lives a dignified life, free from the shackles of poverty.

Our Achievements:

  • Mid-Day Meals Milestone: One of our most significant accomplishments is the provision of mid-day school meals to over 700 children on a daily basis. This program not only ensures children get the nutrition they need but also plays a vital role in encouraging school attendance.

  • Family by Heart Program: Rooted in love, care, and commitment, our "Family by Heart" program supports over 500 children. Within this program, we've established stationary facilities serving 15-20 children in villages near Kathmandu. For those in the remote areas of the Himalayas, we ensure they too receive our unwavering support.

Join Us on This Journey: We invite you to join hands with us as we strive to make a lasting difference in these children's lives. With your support, we can reach more children, light up more smiles, and transform more futures. Together, we can write a brighter chapter for the future of Nepal.
