Lotus Foundation

The Lotus Foundation is a non-profit organization operating since 1999, and its mission is to promote social welfare through social action, education and volunteering. The Foundation has different social projects focused on the most disadvantaged sectors of society such as cancer patients, elderly people in need, children at risk of social exclusion and the environment.

One of the most important tasks at the Foundation is to provide the opportunity to participate in alleviating the suffering of others, to inspire, motivate, energize, support, educate and heal.

It was founded in 1999 in the USA by David Urgeles. The first social projects in prisons began there.

It then moved its headquarters to Mataró, Barcelona, from where the Foundation’s projects are directed. Projects currently in operation:

  • Leisure and Homework Project: support for children at risk of social exclusion
  • Caring for the elderly Project: company for elderly people who are alone
  • Oar Project: support for teenagers at risk of exclusion. Rowing practice to enhance teamwork
