Village girls and those living in urban poverty enabled by training to become bread winners for their family after graduating from a tailoring courses become more independent and gain respect from their families and communities.
Lack of health services and knowledge of basic hygiene leads to many social ills and impacts on education and livelihood outcomes. Our CARE programs include Village based health programs and provision of nutrition for school children.
In 2020-2021 and even in view of the devastating impacts of the Covid 19 pandemic, White Lotus Charitable Trust has, against all the odds, continued to provide access to education and vital health services to neglected and backward underserved communities in villages and the urban poor.
In terms of project implementation, 2020 turned up unprecedented challenges and uncertainties. While there were unavoidable interruptions due to lockdowns and quarantine requirements, White Lotus Trust and our grass roots team left no stone unturned in our efforts to ensure projects continued to provide education, health and training to communities in need.
We deeply appreciate the selfless and courageous efforts of our local field staff and community partners that enabled us to adapt and innovate and enable us establish Covid Relief efforts from very early in the lockdown.
