After working as a reporter in Asia for many years, I was looking for a non-profit that focuses on the empowerment of girls and women. Lotus Outreach is a perfect example of an effective grassroots organization with an amazing track record. Only a very small percentage of donations go towards admin and fundraising - they don't drive big Landrovers and they go into the poorest and most remote areas that are often overlooked by the bigger organizations. They work long-term, establish trust and involve the entire community in issues such as education and sex slavery. Highly recommended!

Lotus Outreach focuses on improving lives of many people, specifically women and children, who are in disadvantage because of the poor protection of human rights by the governments in their respective countries. In addition, Lotus Outreach works with local non-profits in other countries thus improving the infrastructure and bureaucracies that can further develop their policies in regards to protection of human rights.

Working with Lotus Outreach has been an experience that has made me re-think all non-profits value completely. LO is run with the utmost transparency, and they keep in touch with donors through all avenues imaginable (email, social networking, web) to keep them engaged and in-the-know about how their dollars are at work. What impresses me more than anything is all of the thought they put into their causes and their execution of their programs. They only do what is proven to likely make a difference and help women, children and communities sustain themselves in the long run and are always innovating their approach for better outcomes. If the world's causes could be led by groups like LO, we would have a lot less problems.
