Theory of Change

Following are the key points explaining the development framework of Lotus Petal Foundation-
● We identify the problem by examining the background of underprivileged children.
● These children have either no exposure to school or have low learning levels and belong to low income households.
● These children usually have low nutrition levels and poor health.
● To uplift them, Lotus Petal Foundation intervened with three development indicators i.e., Education, Nutrition and Livelihood.
● There are various programmes run under these indicators.
● The results from this intervention is that they attain formal education, improved nutritional and mental health.
● With these positive results, they witness social inclusion in society.
● The outcome of an overall intervention is the assimilation of underprivileged children in mainstream society.
● This change process takes place with the support of its key stakeholders by constantly encouraging its stakeholders by conducting awareness campaigns.
