The Karuna Center bridges divides to build sustainable peace in areas at risk for violent conflict. We design and implement multi-year programs, lead peacebuilding trainings, and provide conflict analysis to national and multilateral organizations. Through collaborations with local partners, we build the capacity of communities and societies to interrupt cycles of conflict, recognize shared needs, and prevent the spread of violent extremism in any form. Since Karuna Center’s founding in 1994, our programs have directly engaged a wide range of stakeholders—from grassroots communities, to the halls of parliament. We have led training programs or multi-year projects in more than 35 conflict-affected countries.
