Why we exist
Bringing colour to the lives of refugee kids through collaborative art projects.
‘Little Lotus Project’ is a collaborative art project, linking international artists with refugee children on the Thai/Burma border.
Over the past two years, the project has seen 16 talented artists/creatives from across the globe fundraise their way to the Thai/Burma border. The artists worked with and inspired refugee and migrant children who have fled from the instability of Burma and are now supported by the children’s charity, SpinningTop.
Just like the Lotus flower, these children deserve the chance to flourish and with art and creativity missing from their lives the Little Lotus Project brings them the joy of creativity and at the same time raises vital funds to support their ongoing welfare. Below are the incredible artists and creatives who have volunteered their time and energy to travel to the Burma/Thai border to support the kids.

SpinningTop works hard to bring balance to the lives of vulnerable children living in poverty. Creative charity projects like these help them to raise awareness and funds to continue supporting the ongoing education and health of children who need it the most. These funds are invested in long-term sustainable charity projects, which means that your investment doesn’t just provide food or support until the money runs out, it means your investment is integral building things like sustainable gardens so the food continues to grow without sponsorship.
