“A big thumbs up to the Lotus Petal team for their unrelenting efforts for building resilient communities. The focus and the grit that the children at Lotus Petal have imbibed in their journey is the best testimony of the catalytic role that the organization has played in creating the much needed foundation for social change. At Cargill, we take pride in our association with Lotus Petal and are grateful for the partnership. Personally, I draw inspiration from Kushal and team for their conviction, courage and authenticity and wish them more power.”Dipanwita Chakraborty
“Concentrix is delighted to partner with Lotus Petal Charitable Foundation in providing education to underprivileged students in the society. We are partners with the NGO since March 2016 and aim to support children in continuing their education, unleashing their unfulfilled potential, and shaping their careers in this competitive environment. Lotus Petal Charitable Foundation is one of the most professional non-profits I have come across in my career. At Concentrix, our value system motivates us to support such organizations regularly and we are proud to be part of such a noble endeavor. I wish Lotus Petal all the best in its zeal to reach out to the less-fortunate members of the society.”Deepak Wadhawan

“I have been contributing to the Youth Cares Team for the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon. I have seen Lotus Petal grow consistently each year. I feel confident of my contribution going at the right place. I have seen the student runners grow in the last few years. They look healthier and more confident. As a donor it warms my heart to be a part of this noble cause and the organization in my humble capacity.”Hatim Tarawaala.
“I call myself a pragmatic dreamer. I grew up in a family of eight children. My father passed away when I was ten years old. Life became real for me me very quickly. My mother was an amazing and resourceful person who managed to put all of her eight children through college on the salary of a first grade teacher. She was also someone who knew the importance of getting outside of herself and her community to explore the bigger picture. Travel was a priority in her life and she made it one for her children as well.
By the time I was out of college, I had already traveled a good part of the world. I knew what life was like in other countries and I knew that I needed to be a part of that larger community.
Throughout my career as a designer working in the home furnishings industry, I was able to continue to travel for both business and pleasure. Eventually, feeling a deepening need to give back, I moved into the non-profit sector and began a new career working in Fair Trade. This is where I became acquainted with Lotus Petal Foundation. Everything about the organization spoke to my heart and soul. Their philosophy, their methods, their priorities, it made so much sense to me, and I wanted to be a part of it in whatever small way that I could.
I hope to be able to visit the school someday soon and see for myself what this smart, talented and resourceful group of people have accomplished through love, hard work, will power and sheer determination. I hope to look into the eyes of our future generation and tell them to study hard, honor your family and above all, be true to yourself. In the mean time, I will continue to support the Lotus Petal Foundation from wherever I am.”Elizabeth Russ
