The Mission of Light

We are among the people!

There are so many beautiful causes to support: the orphan, the widow, clean water, anti-war, refugees, human trafficking – sadly the list goes on and on.

LIGHT Partnership operates various projects in rural India. Our goal is to bring care to orphans, destitute children, and teens.

In the United States alone more then 40,000 orphans age out of care Every day. According to UNICEF Orphans that leave institutional care without a support group are 10 times more likely to commit suicide.

The mission of LIGHT Partnership is to provide a family environment where vocational and life skills training can empower the world’s most vulnerable children and young adults.”
