What we value
- Who are we?
Lotus caring hands (LCH) is a UK-based organisation established in April 2009 to support British Tamils Diaspora who want to make a difference to social and economic development in Sri Lanka. Weuse our extensive networks in both the UK and Sri Lanka to provide means for both individuals and businesses who wish to contribute towards social change in Sri Lanka
- What do we do?
LCH focuses on identifying projects and organisations which seek to empower local people and encourage them to see creative solutions which will be sustainable and contribute to development over the long term. Currently we work with carefully selected Partner Organisations in Sri Lanka.You can read more about our due diligence process and why we believe it is important to select the right charities.
1. Education for youth & children
2. Emergency Relief & Disaster Preparedness
3. Orphans and Child Welfare
- Who do we work with?
Our Partner Organisations in Sri Lanka are in a remarkable position to provide opportunities to marginalised communities and disadvantaged people. This is because they are embedded within the communities that they are working to empower. The charities are run by local people and therefore they understand the challenges that the communities face better than anyone. As these charities are so 'local' in nature, they often find it difficult to attract the international support that they need. LCH is building a partnership between the British Tamil community and grassroots charities in Sri Lanka in order to help address this. We hope that our programmes will help unlock the huge potential which exists in the British Tamil community to promote social and economic development in Sri Lanka.
