I personally attend and participate in each project, as I firmly believe there is no greater reward than experiencing first hand the efforts involved and the impact the foundation's work has on the lives of individuals it is able to help.
Through hard work, determination and great support from family and friends, the Kar Seva Foundation has carried out several projects to date including:
