Review from CharityNavigator

I am always amazed how a relatively small public foundation, powered by volunteers, can make such a positive impact internationally. There are many wonderful organizations that help provide the fundamental needs of food and water, but what makes The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) unique is that it promotes the understanding that personal peace is also a fundamental human need, and it fosters dignity, peace and prosperity. I’m honored to be a volunteer for TPRF.

I enjoy donating to the Prem Rawat Foundation. I recently contributed this year as i did last for the World Water Day. The Adventure Project partnered with the Prem Rawat Foundation to help raise money to provide clean drinking water to over 200,000 people in India. What is great about this program is it works to provide a sustainable solution to help bring clean drinking water to people and help them maintain there water wells. It is nice to see your money go for good, make a difference and get reports back on where your money goes. I look forward to more great projects with the The Prem Rawat Foundation

I appreciate the regular blog posts with the details of where my donations are going. There is a great need for accountability in this day and age and I am comforted to know that even my small donation is making a difference in others lives. Knowing that a certain dollar amount provided water for 100,000 people matters to me. I'm thanked via email for every donation I make which is also a plus. Making some small bit of difference matters and knowing the specifics of what is being provided to those in need on a global scale matters too.

In Latinamerica the Prem Rawat Foundation has done great things, including providing help to reroof after a hurricane in Mexico, help in the quechua communities in the andes and great outreach programs in prisons.
The fact that most of the money collected goes to help and is very transparent
helps me to donate.
Overall it is success story of a grass roots organization.

I've watched with keen interest the work of TPRF and seen something different in the way they operate and their grass roots efforts to help people directly. This is the kind of non profit the world needs more of without layer after layer of administrative expenses and salaries chewing up the money that would otherwise go toward people that really need it.

The only changes I can say that might help is improving their social media outreach so they can serve more communities throughout the world.

A different Foundation whose aims are: bringing trusting new humanitarian actions who with intelligence are bringing a real movement of change in different regions in need of the world like countryside India, Ghana, Nepal and so on. Food for People is one of the really intelligent projects together with offering free ophthalmic help to people in need of eyeglasses in India. I, as a medical doctor, I appreciate and contribute to the Foundation goals and I can witness its goodness because I sow myself, with my eyes, one of the successful achievement of the Foundation: Bantoli Food for People. This Foundation and its actions are something to know, to investigate, and to study because of the great ideas which are involved within it.

For me the Prem Rawat Foundation has found the right balance between providing care and assistance where needed, without creating a continuing dependence on that care. The Food for People program in particular, has created a model for change which is reproducible and sustainable on any scale. Facilities in Nepal, India and soon in Ghana, provide nutritious food and clean water in a way that utilizes local produce and once under way, is sustained by the villagers themselves. The core mission behind these and other projects, as outlined by Prem Rawat, is to address fundamental human needs so that people everywhere can live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity. My experience in working with this Foundation is that these are not just "nice words" but are put into practice in a real and effective way.

I am deeply grateful that a non-profit organisation like The Prem Rawat Foundation exists. Founded in 2001, with the highest standards of transparency and accountability, dedicated to helping those in most need and most neglected, victims of natural disasters and other circumstances beyond their control, I have been closely following the work of this organisation. And I am filled with admiration for the intelligence, integrity, practicality, innovation, simplicity, quality, respect, commitment - the list could go on and on - of TPRF www.tprf.org

At its core is the understanding and respect for fundamental human needs, and the ongoing effort to meet and fulfill those needs. I have lost count of the many humanitarian initiatives completed since its inception. Some of them providing ongoing daily vital support of food and water. For example, the Food for People facilities in Northern India and Nepal which has now been operating for several years, with a new facility presently under construction in Ghana.

TPRF keeps in close communication with its supporters through regular reports, videos, photographs, blogs, and I have never before felt so deeply moved and enriched in heart, soul, spirit, by what I see, read, and feel through these communications.

Thanks to The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), I feel absolute certainty that whatever I contribute is put to the best possible use in the best possible way. Nothing is wasted, nothing is lost. This certainty is very precious to me, in a world of uncertainties. I deeply value the honour and integrity that makes this certainty possible.

The Great!

TPRF maintains ongoing communication of its activities and results in a way that is immediate, personal, heartfelt and professional. Thanks to this, I feel deeply and personally connected to all its initiatives and activities. Something I could not achieve as one individual. Yet collectively, thanks to the inspiration, vision, love and dedication of Prem Rawat, this is made possible.

It already surpasses my expectations of a humanitarian non-profit organisation.

This is my charity of choice when donating to ease the suffering of people around the world. I know Prem Rawat travels extensively around the world and regularly visits the areas his charity targets. I also trust this charity to research worthy programs and execute them diligently. And what is always nice when giving to charity is to see a very large percentage of the donation actually going to the program rather than 'overheads', which this largely volunteer-run charity can afford to do.

A year ago I was involved in efforts to raise funds for TPRF's third "Food for People" initiative. After considerable research, a location in Ghana was selected and a new facility will be constructed next year. Rather than a one-off donation of food, these permanent facilities provide on-going food aid to some of the most disadvantaged people on the planet. They are instrumental in lifting entire communities out of the poverty cycle, and they provide a model for future global initiatives to alleviate poverty in third world countries. Charity Navigator has awarded TPRF a 5 star (highest) rating. http://www.tprf.org
