The Lotus Club project was started by the director-founder of Monde par la main -Give a Hand.Since 2007, Monde par la main-Give a Hand has been supporting the efforts of Vidya NGO and especially the work conducted in the Pappankalan community. After initially creating a sewing and skills development program for the ladies of that community, we realized that mothers always attended classes with their children. It’s for that reason that we created the Lotus Club program designed especially for the children. In this low-income community parents do not have the means to provide access to art, dance, music and sports .
Since the beginning the Lotus Club has been a real success and the program now provides yoga , photography, art, dance, music classes, and computer sciences classes which draws on the talents and skills of selected teachers in each discipline.
The activities are also aiming at developing specific skills such as self-esteem, identity development, conflict resolution, decision-making, and communication skills.
Give a Hand would like to take this opportunity to say thank you on behalf of all the children of Pappankalan, to Design Zola for their partnership and support for this fundraiser for Earth Day 2018.
