Upscaling to two Nepalese provinces
In 2018, Karuna Nepal and Karuna the Netherlands are preparing to scale up Inspire2Care to two provinces in Nepal, together with the Government of Nepal, local communities and a consortium of committed investors. Read more about our ambition.
Inspire2Care is a proven and cost-effective model that is adapted to the local context and (financial) capacity of the community in such a way, that it is easily replicable in other countries. Karuna can inspire, train and support organisations that are aiming for great impact and interested to work with Inspire2Care in other contexts.
