“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” – Albert Einstein
Lotus Outreach anti-trafficking, health and water service programs are directly serving 17,000 women and children in 2019.
Education, literacy and advocacy play an important role in protecting girls from exploitation. As the voices of women strengthen, they are spurred to demand equality and look out for one another. In this way, education and training addresses exploitation before it can occur. For those who are survivors of violence, we have projects that provide trauma therapy, social services, and economic empowerment.
Our work in anti-trafficking, health and water very directly improve wellbeing and educational outcomes. Our well program provides clean water and health education to communities in dire need while supporting school attendance for children who might otherwise be walking long distances for potable water while their parents earn wages. Instead, health and education are supported by the nearby wells we provide. Our rural health program is directly empowering local health workers to educate their communities.
We are proud to support the conditions for our beneficiaries to thrive.
