“My trip to India was my first trip solo trip abroad, so I was a little apprehensive but as soon as I met other people on the trip I felt very at home… I speared (and ate) my first lionfish and even got to snorkel with a whale shark! I also received my advanced SCUBA certification and got to go on my first night dive… When you travel as a volunteer, you are exposed to and develop and appreciation for what “real life” is like in that environment, as opposed to only seeing the pretty, well-developed and commercialized tourist areas.” -Tracy, Germany

“I have learnt a lot about how the hospital function and the work which goes on in the lab. The whole change in culture itself was an experience.” Lara-Bavinton, USA

“Born and raised in a college town of the Midwest of the United States. I study Geography and work at a vegetarian cafe and juice bar. I practice gratitude and other forms of meditation. If you want to see the world, and be involved in helping people wherever you end up going, Kenosis is a great way to do that. Kenosis programs allow you to see the beauty of the developing world and its anthropological riches, as well as participate directly in service with the local people.” -Thomas Blower, UK

Kenosis Foundation (KF) in India is a non-political and non-religious organization. Its mission is to “educate, empower and enable” women and girl children of poverty stricken and dehumanized communities. It’s by uniting people of different local communities in order to create development in the broadest sense through the implementation of the projects that aim at transferring knowledge, skills and capacity to individuals and communities who need assistance to come out of poverty and other dehumanizing conditions.


The development work members do is diverse, but all based on fighting shoulder to shoulder with the poorest of the poor.


The development approach is centred on people organizing together in their communities as they take an active participation with responsibility in creating change in their lives and communities.


We got registered on June 29, 2013, as a not for profit organization under Charity Trust Act 1882, in Bangalore City, Karnataka state, INDIA.
