A chronicle

Karuna-Shechen breathes hope with a 10-year tome.

The Karuna-Shechen Foundation, a non-profit organization that works with a network of local partners and volunteers to provide educational, health and social services to the most disadvantaged populations of the Grand Himalaya region, wanted to chronicle its achievements over the last ten years (it was founded in 2000). So, it decided to put them all into a book, which also serves as a souvenir for workers, volunteers, collaborators and donors. Montreal-based Lg2boutique did the design which aims, like the organization, to “breathe hope.”
