Nothing empowers and enriches a person as good education does. But there is huge sections of society who are at great disadvantage to get quality education.
We feel, every small step can help in mitigating this huge disadvantage that the underprivilege kids have. With that intention in mind we conducted first White Lotus Outdoor Education and leadership camp in 2008 with 21 kids for 7 days. In the summer of 2009 we have had 40 kids for about two weeks.
Our efforts are supported now by Princeton University. We shall continue to conduct more and more extensive camps to benefits the children of tomorrow.
