Together We Can Make A Difference

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.

Become a Lighthouse Mentor

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.
