All it takes is 4 hours a month to be a Lighthouse Mentor. Apply today!
The Lighthouse Project is a not-for-profit in Mumbai that connects working professionals and college students with children from under resourced communities, through one-on-one mentoring in a safe environment. Mentors spend 4 hours a month over an 8 month period building their aspiration levels, developing their life skills and social skills and exposing them to a world outside of their community.
Mentoring is a simple and powerful tool that expands a child's mind, raises their aspiration levels and perpetuates trusting relationships. We believe that our mentors have as much to learn from the bright and resilient children we work with.
Currently we work with children from slum communities and girl children from Mumbai’s red light district across 5 locations in Mumbai. Most of these children are first generation learners and often lack a consistent, positive role model to guide them in their daily lives. Moreover the education system does not equip children with the necessary skills to ensure that they are job ready upon graduation. Mentoring enables both our mentors and mentees learn from each other and become socially conscious contributors to society.
