Lotus Children's Centre based in Mongolia.

"In 1993 Didi Kalika, an Australian kindergarten and yoga teacher in Ulaanbaatar, was shocked by the plight of so many kids living on the streets. She started to help the kids by providing food and shelter and soon realized that there was a need for more.

"In 1995, with the help of some friends, she started the Lotus Centre: a place that provides children who come from some of the most terrible backgrounds; abandonment, sexual abuse, malnutrition and domestic violence; a chance to change their lives for the better." [1]

"Some of our valuable supporters are: Australian Volunteers International (AVI), who manages one Lotus account in Australia; AMURT America manages a child sponsorship program and gifts program; AMURT Italy fundraises within Italy; and James Prudhomme donates his time and skills, helping with our web and online donations." [2]

"Ivanhoe has been supporting the work of the centre by contracting members of the community to make mineral sample bags in support of the companies operations in Mongolia." [3]
