Lotus Children's Centre
From 1993, Didi Ananda Kalika started helping kids living in street. She wanted to create a centre to educate these children. In 1995 she started Lotus Children's Centre with the help and support of some of her friends.
The goals of Lotus Children's Centres are—
- To provide primary care to all of our children, which includes food, health care, clothing and accommodation
- To provide the children with developmental care so that they can break free of the poverty cycle. For example, we aim to give each child a quality education, counseling, self-esteem building exercises and the access to life skills.
- To provide the children with support in their "post-Lotus" lives, so that they have a safety net and are able to find employment and tertiary education placements.
