TPRF - The Prem Rawat Foundation
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) strives to address fundamental human needs so that people everywhere can live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity. Founded in 2001, TPRF works to extend the outreach of Prem Rawat’s message of peace throughout the world. TPRF also provides aid for people in urgent need of life-sustaining resources like food and water, especially in areas where funds from larger foundations may not be available. The Foundation has actively funded humanitarian initiatives in 27 countries.
An important part of the TPRF's mission is to help improve the quality of life for people most in need. The Foundation regularly holds free medical clinics in India, helps refugees in war-torn areas, and assists other organizations that support charitable, social, or philanthropic programs and services consistent with Prem Rawat's message of peace.
The Foundation has delivered aid rapidly and efficiently in many countries to people whose lives had been devastated by natural disasters. TPRF has relationships with the best humanitarian organizations with a strong presence in the field: Friends of the World Food Program, the Red Cross, the Houston Food Bank, Action Against Hunger, and Oxfam, among others.
The activities of TPRF are funded by the generosity of individuals who are appreciative of Prem Rawat’s message and the Foundation’s humanitarian initiatives and by the sale of related materials.
The promotion and dissemination of Prem Rawat's message is funded by the contributions of people who appreciate his message and wish to help make it available to others. Prem Rawat is a successful private investor and does not receive any compensation from the Foundation or any other organization furthering his message.
These partnerships are very successful. Foundation’s relationship with Friends of the World Food Program has enabled them to provide food for one month to 9,000 Indonesian tsunami victims; 2,000 famine victims in Niger; 4,500 school children in Guatemala; 6,000 earthquake victims in Pakistan; and thousands of earthquake victims in Peru.
Through the Red Cross, the Foundation provided food aid to mudslide victims in the Philippines, and through Oxfam, TPRF helped to provide drinking water to war victims in Lebanon and Israel. Through the Houston Food Bank, TPRF provided three meals a day for three months to 8,000 victims of Hurricane Katrina.
"Food for People" initiative was started by Maharaji which provides nutritious meals twice a day round the year to people in need in India, Nepal and few other countries. The Foundation also regularly holds free medical clinics. Volunteer eye-care professionals come at appointed times about once a year in each location. They examine people's eyes and dispense the most commonly needed prescriptions immediately. Special prescriptions are made up overnight as needed. At each clinic, about 2,000 people are examined, with 75% of them needing glasses. While blindness is widespread in India, most of it is preventable, and TPRF is educating people on how to take care of their eyes as well as treating their eyes with simple medications and corrective lenses.
