Publisher's Description

This book tackles one of the most pressing issues facing the world today-child poverty and what to do about it. In particular, it explores the lives of underprivileged and lower class children in India, peering into inherent societal inequalities. It is the world the author has observed firsthand both through her humanitarian work, extensive travel and her experience as the first Public Engagement Officer at an international NGO (Peace-Child India). She worked with slum communities, children's homes and migrant communities in Bangalore, India. Lotus of the Lake incorporates East-West perspectives on faith and poverty, points of view of the poverty stricken and their life experiences. So often, their thoughts, stories, dreams and desires are overlooked. These are the views the author highlights in her book--deep inner realities that only the poverty-stricken themselves can describe. Gill plans to build a safe, harmonious, and educational home for the poverty-stricken children in Southern India. She eventually hopes to catalyze the construction of such homes in every state within India, Africa and other developing countries such as, Haiti. The homes will act as safe havens for children-protecting them from abuse, poverty, malnutrition and neglect--offering them a world of education and hope.
