The Karen Culture and Social Support Foundation Inc. supports Karen Buddhists and Karen Christian people to practise their traditional religions and culture, and helps refugees. We have a Buddhist monastery in the centre of Bendigo. We plan to build a community centre and housing for people needing short-term accommodation by 2017.

We welcome TAFE and university students doing placements with our community as well as volunteers. Go to our 'Get Involved' page for more information.

Students and volunteers must have a Working with Children Check.
