At Lotus Outreach, our mission is to empower the most at-risk women and children living in poverty. We work in six countries and address the multi-layered causes of poverty and vulnerability through education, training, and care projects that focus on the empowerment of women and girls. At the heart of our approach is a holistic solution:

Education and Training + Care = Empowerment.

With affiliates in seven countries, donors, ambassadors, artists, volunteers, and foundation, corporate, and NGO partners around the world, we are a global community that believes empowerment is the heart of sustainable change.


When LO founder, Khyentse Norbu, travelled to Cambodia for the first time, he visited a safe-house orphanage where he encountered a young girl who held his finger really tight and wouldn’t let him go. The way he put it,

“I had this really strong feeling, connection, so to speak. So I immediately asked the orphanage, I really want to support this girl, you know, all the way through her university and on. She was also a little bit blind. So, I have to really give credit to her strength to have Lotus Outreach here today. It is really because of her.”
