After much discussion and contact with several charities, we decided to raise money for the country we will be visiting. This sits comfortably with us as a team, bringing money into the country we hope to enjoy and i hope continuing to change many lives as it already has.
Since 2004 the teams of the Mongol Rally have raised nearly £2 million for charity, we want to be part of that, especialy for the Official Rall Charity
The Lotus Children’s Centre is a Mongolian non-profit, non-government organisation working with vulnerable children and families to provide the basic human rights of shelter, food and education. Lotus has cared for up to 150 abused, orphaned and abandoned children at any one time and now currently look after 90 vulnerable children. Initially set up to provide basic needs for survival for just a handful of children in one apartment, the organisation has developed a kindergarten and a primary school to provide educational foundation, and is developing vocational pathways for employment opportunities. The newest expansion of the Lotus family is the development of a new orphanage centre, 20km from the centre of Ulaanbaatar, which our children moved into at the beginning of 2012.
