From the inception, profits from New Creations Contracting have been dedicated to reaching out to the poor of the world. In the early years, Eric Luedtke, founder of New Creations worked and supported faith-based missions work in Mexico. In the years that followed, profits from New Creations and PRIMSA have been used in Africa, Eastern Europe, Kosovo, Mexico, India, Russia, Spain, Thailand, and Vietnam. Eric’s work in these countries has always been focused on providing education, financial support, vocational training and spiritual hope to women and children.
In 1995 Eric was invited to travel to India and Nepal to explore new possibilities of reaching the poorest of Asia. During this and following trips, it became obvious to Eric, his new focus would be in Nepal, to help rescue children from slavery and women from sex slavery.
Eric has traveled sometimes twice every year to Nepal ever since. These travels have taken him into the remote high villages of the Himalayan Mountains as wells as most of the lower regions of Nepal.
His focus is to provide free education to poor / low caste / slave children, micro-financing and vocational training to the parents and women rescued from the sex slave trade. This initiate is giving them a voice in their future and a means to escape the slavery of society they would have otherwise been a prisoner to for life.
In 2001, Eric became a Charter Member of the Rotary Club of Mahomet, Illinois. Rotary International is the world’s oldest and largest service organization. Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago, Illinois by Paul Harris and several other businessmen. From the very beginning, service was the goal of this group. Initially, Rotary concentrated on community service projects. However, the organization soon became called Rotary International as it grew into the four corners of the earth.
Although Rotary is always working in community service, eventually, the primary focus of Rotary was to reach the poor of the world. The Mahomet Rotary Nepal Project has already impacted the lives of over 5,000 children and adults. Since 2001, more than 100,000 Nepali people will benefit from the efforts of Rotarians from Mahomet Illinois, Rotary club of Dillibazar, Kathmandu, Nepal, and countless private contributors around the world. The culture of sex and child slavery is truly being reduced through these efforts!
In 2004, Eric became President of Mahomet Rotary and led the Club into a “Sister Club Relationship” with the Rotary Club of Dillibazar, Kathmandu Nepal. This new partnership’s single focus is to obtain grants through The Rotary Foundation in order to provide education, clean water, medical treatment, vocational training and micro-financing to the poorest and enslaved women and children of Nepal.
2018 marks the largest grant of $60,000 that Eric and Mahomet Rotary have obtained for the people of Nepal. All of our grants are designed to fund schools, vocational training, clean drinking water and micro-financing for children at risk to be sold into slavery, low caste families and women rescued from sex slavery.
