“Seeing my mentee’s attitude and responsibility to his family at his age has made me question my choices and lifestyle. I have started supporting and appreciating my family more and treating my siblings with more respect.”
The Lighthouse Project is a not-for-profit organisation in Mumbai that connects working professionals and college students with children from under resourced communities, through one-on-one mentoring in a safe environment.
Most of these children are first generation learners and often lack a consistent, positive role model to guide them in their daily lives. Moreover, current education systems do not equip children with the necessary skills to ensure that they are job ready upon graduation.
Mentoring enables both our mentors and mentees to learn from each other and become socially conscious contributors to society.
