Karuna-Shechen, the projects we support in India, have welcomed a new head of field operations. Sanjeev Pradhan, previously worked as a manager and executive director in India, Nepal, and Bhutan in sectors ranging from corporate and agricultural to social and community development.
He has helped to create a housing co-operative for the elderly, provided consulting to organizations working with refugees, and directed a company specializing in ecofriendly and green energy.
Sanjeev joined the team last May and his vision for Karuna-Shechen is to enhance and extend the projects to directly serve more people in need. He intends to accomplish this by consolidating the current projects and by using a vigorous multi-disciplinary approach to provide direct medical outreach and education to the poorest communities.
