Dear valued visitors, supporters and well-wishers,

Welcome to the web pages of the Punya Foundation.

The Punya Foundation is a not for profit charity based welfare organisation registered in South Australia. The Foundation operates on the principles of universal declaration of human rights with the vision of “Justice through Education and Empowerment”. It operates without inclination to any religion, culture, ethnicity, caste and gender.

The target groups of the Foundation are those people who need support to live a dignified life. The foundation assists underprivileged and rendered vulnerable children with their education. It focuses on welfare of women in fronts of social issues like mediation programs and empowerment through adult education. The Punya Foundation is established to contribute to make differences in lives of vulnerable, deprived, and victimised people across the globe.

We also work to mobilize resources and extend emergency assistance during disasters and natural calamities. To assist people like immigrants and refugees, the Foundation organizes integration programs, cultural activities, job-oriented training programs and provides psychosocial support.

For safeguarding and promotion of fundamental human rights, the foundation raises voice against violation of human rights to bring social injustice at international forum. The Punya Foundation is an initiative of Bhutanese who lived decades of harsh lives in the refugee camps in Nepal. It is a team of committed and result oriented youths, experts, activists, professionals and think tanks.
