Event description

Description

November 2011 saw the birth of Lotus Petal Foundation, a non-profit set up by a young professional, Kushal Raj, with the objective of helping children in the urban slums of India. Access to quality education, basic healthcare and a secure life of dignity is still a distant dream to the underprivileged in India. Kushal decided to make a change - In 2011, he started a makeshift school in a single room with six boys and a girl. Over the years, the dream has grown to include almost 500 children.

The cost to educate a child per year including books, school supplies, uniform and taking care of their meals and health is about $15 per month per child. This is possible because Lotus Petal ensures every dollar raised goes towards the program. Kushal himself doesn’t take any salary despite dedicating himself 100% to the program. The program is kept lean and 96% of your contribution goes to the beneficiary. The organization is verified by CAF America and Benevity.

Lotus Petal Cost of Educating a Child - $15 per month

Lotus Petal and Kushal are now taking a giant step of setting up large school for 2000 children. This requires a funding of $5Mn, 50% of which has been raised. With your contributions and help – this dream of giving a life of dignity for 1000’s underprivileged children can come true.

Please join us for a glamourous evening, full of inspirational stories, entertainment and opportunities to help transform a few lives through education.
