TPRF Responds to Earthquake in Nepal

Our hearts continue to go out to the people of Nepal. Within hours of the devastating April 25 earthquake and major May 12 aftershock, staff at TPRF’s Food for People (FFP) facility were able to offer shelter, food, and water to local villagers.

With your contributions and our partnership with Premsagar Foundation Nepal, a flow of relief supplies is also reaching the area surrounding FFP and further up into the mountains where the devastation was even worse.

Follow frequent updates about what is happening, what villagers are reporting, new photos, and plans for future rebuilding here.

The Mission of TPRF

is to address the fundamental human needs of food, water, and peace.

Through a variety of programs and initiatives, TPRF is dedicated to helping build a world at peace, one person at a time, so that people can live with:

Dignity - Peace - Prosperity

Peace for People: TPRF works to advance Prem Rawat’s message that peace is possible for each individual—that peace is both an inner resource and innate right. It is through the discovery of personal peace that world peace will emerge.

Peace Education Program (PEP): The Peace Education Program is designed to help participants discover their own inner resources—innate tools for living such as inner strength, choice, and hope—and the possibility of personal peace.

Food for People (FFP): FFP is a model food program for rural villages in poverty-stricken areas that is bringing about significant improvements in school attendance and achievement, community health, and economic outlook.

TPRF is a US-based public non-profit charity organization, whose worldwide efforts are funded by the generosity of donors from over 50 countries. Most of the Foundation’s staff, including the Board of Directors, are volunteers. Learn more about TPRF here.
