Lotus Children's Education Trust (LCET) was established in July 2014 with the prime intention of providing free holistic education and a chance to a bright future for destitute children particularly from the third world countries. LCET is now fully and formally registered with the UK Charity Commission. The UK Registered Charity Number is 1170236.  LCET incorporates and operates from the ‘Lotus Children’s Home’, which is dully registered with the government of Bangladesh. The registered number is: 'Ranga 300/15'.The current home was constructed in 2013 and is situated in the Chittagong Hill Tracts on the Bangladesh- Myanmar border. Lotus Children’s Home stands on six acres of land, which was donated by a devotee of Venerable Nagasena Bhikkhu. Lotus Children’s Home is comprised of two temporary bamboo structures and accommodates 30 destitute children and two teachers in 2016. These destitute children are from the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the nearby region. They are from extremely poor families with no access to education and facilities. Given the non-existing social support system, the welfare and well-being of these children is dependent on the generosity of local people. A group of dedicated volunteer workers led by Venerable Nagasena Bhikkhu manage the day-to-day running of Lotus Children’s Home. A governing committee (group of Trustees) looks after the management of LCET and Lotus Children’s Home.  As a Trust, we are committed to working in a fully ethical, honest and transparent manner. Your generosity will never be forgotten or abused, and every little help will be counted and effectively used for the promotion of our plans.

Foundation History

 LOTUS CHILDREN’S HOME IN KAPTAI, RANGAMATI, CHITTAGONG HILL TRACTS, BANGLADESH 

This Lotus Children's Home was constructed in 2013 in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, near the Bangladesh- Myanmar border. It stands on six acres of land which was donated by a devotee of Venerable Nagasena Bhikkhu, and currently (2016) has two temporary bamboo structures, accommodating 30 destitute children and two teachers.



There is an undocumented number of children whose parents are separated, unfortunate, destitute or poor. Many more children do not receive adequate care from their parents due to lack of education. These parents missed out on education due to lack of resources and are thus unable to provide good schooling and education for their children. On the other hand, the government cannot support these communities adequately due to lack of money, and in many cases due to bureaucratic mismanagement and corruption. This vicious cycle is a common social setting in “undeveloped” countries.

COMPASSION IS OUR APPROACH AND WISDOM IS OUR AGENT FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD

We live in a global and interconnected world. We are connected in terms of natural resources, consumption, trade, businesses,the media and technological innovations. This globalization has brought with itself many challenges for underdeveloped countries, where the ratio of illiteracy is higher than in industrialized countries. Often there is a lack of well-implemented social support policies, as well as limited resources for appropriate and accessible education in underdeveloped countries. This can result in direct or indirect negative consequences for everyone because the problems of one country can spread to another country within a matter of time. 

Our VIEW

hope

to be educated

We believe in this mantra: ''Compassion is our approach and Wisdom is our agent for a sustainable world”. We believe that holistic education is the key to challenging the roots of poverty, ignorance and suffering. Our mission is to give destitute children a better start in life by means of disciplined and effective training suitable to the level of each child’s age and ability - training which is tailored to suit situations where demand exceeds the supply of resources. Our model is intended to improve the cognitive abilities of children with respect to common sense, understanding and other needs.
