Little Lotus Project is an initiative of New Zealand based Children’s charity SpinningTop; Giving balance to vulnerable children.
SpinningTop exists to give balance to vulnerable children living in poverty, whose lives have been thrown off balance through war, oppression, natural disaster and circumstances beyond their control. SpinningTop upholds the rights of all children as stated within the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
SpinningTop are currently working on the Thai/Burma border with children who have been forced by the oppressive military regime to flee their homeland of Burma and in Samoa with victims of sexual abuse, living within basic shelters as their homes are no longer a place of safety. The children we currently support come from extreme poverty, living in the most basic of homes, constructed mostly of bamboo, rice sacks for flooring, running water some distance from the home and maybe two changes of clothes if they are lucky. Toys are a rarity, unless you consider rubber bands toys, which do in fact provide hours of entertainment for them.
We believe given the right balance of Fources, Education, Nutrition, Shelter and Play, these children will be empowered to become contributing members of society, free from poverty. The support we provide prioritises the basic needs of the children within the categories of the Fources, Education, Nutrition, Shelter and Play.
In addition to providing basic needs we also seek new cost effective and innovative ways to encourage sustainable communities, facilities and individuals.
