Our Mission Statement
The Lotus Life Foundation aims to empower
the lives of children with disabilities in rural India through medical intervention and education.
Ultimately, our goal is to integrate these children into society and
take a strong step towards eradicating the stigma associated with disability in rural India.
How does Lotus Life work internationally?
We select partners established in India that do incredible work, and we implement our programs through them. For example, one of our partners is a nonprofit hospital located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat who mostly reaches an urban-based population. With our help we are helping them establish satellite centers which will provide healthcare access to people with disabilities in more rural areas of Gujarat.
Where does Lotus Life work?
Our work is located in rural regions in India. Currently we have projects in the states and surrounding areas of Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh.
What medical treatment do you provide?
We mostly work with children that have disabilities from diseases such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and other such diseases. For this we do treatments ranging from orthotic intervention to surgery. Physical therapy is a large part of our treatment regimen, and we implement a home-based therapy program through all of our partners in which we train the parents of a child to perform daily physical therapy at home.
How do you select a partner?
Our partners are thoroughly vetted by our team to make sure we create the most effective relationships. We make sure our partners are ambitious, looking to improve and expand their programs, and most of all have genuine passion for the cause. We then perform a pilot program and from then on we decide if a partner is the right fit for us.
