I've been following this organization and its charitable acts for some time now, and I am so pleased with the respect and dignity with which they treat the people they are helping. Also, finding the best way to truly be of help, not just throwing money at the problems. They are my first choice for my charitable contribution dollars. Thank you, TPRF!

What I liked about this Foundation is the reach to remote places. Usually Organizations put in their efforts where the media attention can be achieved, but this organization I've seen; they go to places so remote, we don't even know exist! They've put in lots of efforts in my village Bantoli near Ranchi, which is nothing less than miracle for the village and the vicinity!

There are many great nonprofits which deserve our support My personal choice is TPRF As well as its humanitarian aid centered around key essentials such as clean water ,nutritious food and eye care it provides a inspiring message of peace regardless of race religion or lifestyle. Its Peace Education Programs designed to be used in a variety of organizations has recently nurtured the feeling of peace in many prison environments throughout the world. TPRF's core people are small in number but large in heart. This enables that the maximum amount of funds end up where the most good can be done. The Foundation chooses their partners wisely to facilitate aid as quickly as possible and to support self reliance and accountability amongst recipients. With great confidence I can recommend this Foundation to anyone wanting to make a difference.

Seeing smiling people's faces makes it real for me. TPRF keeps the dignity and humanity of those people by not making them a simple statistic. It also helps that I admire its founder, Prem Rawat and his relentless effort to bring message of peace to four corners of the world.

TPRF has become my charity of choice for a couple of reasons: One, the dedication to a concrete value for the programs they support and initiate. Two, because of the person who founded it, Prem Rawat, who has held a remarkable consistency of purpose to teach the value and preciousness of life and this passion permeates the whole of the foundation and all the people involved and I truly enjoy the results of their wonderful programs too.

Sharing is caring. In a world lacerated by greed and selfishness, the effort of TPRF, helping the needed around the globe, is greatly inspirational. Once I've heard to the true revolution will happen the day that every human being on this planet will have its basics needs covered. To me, this is a practical way to help make that possible.

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.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've monitored this organization and noticed increasingly effective results as they apply their philosophy of helping people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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