Karma Nirvana is a UK registered charity that supports victims and survivors of Forced Marriage and Honour Based Abuse.
The project was established by Jasvinder in 1993. A survivor of Forced Marriage and Honour Based Abuse, Jasvinder wanted to create a support network for other women like her. She knew that victims of this abuse may face cultural or language barriers, and so wished to provide them with an accessible, informed and supportive service.
Since establishment, Karma Nirvana has expanded from a local, regional and then national organisation, to a project that now spans the world. Now, Karma Nirvana not only supports female victims, but men and couples who experience Forced Marriage and Honour Based Abuse.
Karma Nirvana seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals, helping them to achieve a sense of peace and, ultimately, enlightenment.
