Merry Christmas from us all at Lotus Flower Trust, and especially from the children of Paravour Primary School in Tamil Nadu - just one of our amazing projects!
Thanks to a generous donation of £15,000 from Gebr. Heinemann and Estée Lauder, we are excited to announce that the much needed Dining Room, Kitchen, Toilets and Washing Facilities at Nalanda Primary School in Ladakh are now complete and look amazing. Most importantly, the teachers and children are delighted with the results!
A large workshop for the recycling machine, along with a warehouse for materials, are now completed at PAGIR - the People’s Action Group for Inclusion and Rights. A pioneer project which Lotus Flower Trust is so proud to have raised funds for, PAGIR is run by a community of people with various physical and mental special needs in Ladakh…

Along life's bumpy way we meet some people who change our lives forever, as we try to help others here at Lotus Flower Trust HQ. It is very sad when these people who have made a difference by offering their kindness, generosity and talents over many years pass away, but these gifts do live on and we will always be grateful for their valued friendship and support.
Thanks to all those who supported the 14 strong team of LFT Runners at the Hatfield Broad Oak 10K on 28th May and helped them to raise more than £150 towards the Lotus Flower Trust.
The team are so committed to running and raising for the charity that they also recently completed the High Easter 10K on the hottest day of the year so far. To date the runners have raised an amazing £10,500 towards LFT Projects in India. On behalf of all the lives you are helping to change, we are so proud and grateful! Keep running!
Members from the Special Olympics International team recently visited our flagship JSR Residential School for Children with Special Needs in Uttrakhand. Here they met with all our special athletes and their coaches.
Last week we were sent photographs from the headteacher Mrs Joshee at our KM Johny Primary School in Tamil Nadu, funded by staff from BSkyB in the UK and India. The photos show the children, staff and their parents all receiving sight tests, funded locally. This will no doubt improve their lives and education considerably! It is so great to see this wonderful school for Dalit ('untouchable') children going from strength to strength.
Thank you to Diane Audras and her young team of volunteers who have set up Passport for Education - a charity which helps support poor children in their education.
