Light For Life Foundation was formed in 2012 and registered in 2013 in Mumbai, India. While visiting rural areas for business, the founders Prashant Deshpande and Kashyap Desai looked at the conditions of those living in the villages and realized that someone needs to step in to improve the living conditions and provide the villagers with better opportunities. This led to the formation of Light For Life Foundation. A foundation that started with an impulse during visits to rural areas of Maharashtra for business, is taking small steps towards issues which require attention of their volunteers and patrons. We believe that a blend of energy of the youth and experience of the mature can bring changes and transform India into a better place.
We work with different NGOs and as a member of Team Spreading Smiles, we support 10 NGOs which are wholly supported by them.
The trustees and the team of volunteers are determined to give in their extra time and efforts to raise funds and to work on different projects from time to time to create a positive impact in the lives of the ones who are not so fortunate.
We always look forward for more volunteers to join us for guidance, support, fund raising and assistance in execution of our projects. Our success in projects is possible, but with joint forces. All it takes is some time, a little bit of effort and a big heart!
Main Areas of Our Work:
• Education for Street Children & Under Privileged
• Supply of books, workbooks, stationery and other educational resources to motivate Education
• Providing resources as required for medically ill children
• Solar Lanterns for houses and villages without electricity
• Supporting various Orphanages with required resources
• We support 10 different NGOs as a part of Team Spreading Smiles
How we're funded
100% of every rupee you donate goes towards purchase of resources and delivering it to distribute as per requirements; Light For Life Foundation does not take a cut.
Light For Life Foundation is primarily funded through the support of volunteers, friends, family and other supporters who we reach out on social networking sites.
We are incredibly thankful for the support that has enabled us to do the work that has touched the lives of so many people.
WORDS FROM OUR PATRONS
At time in life we need to stop and think on what we have and what we can give back to the society....it can be your time, effort or monetary support.

I was asked by my son, why do the poor kids spend all their time on the street. I answered because they are underprivileged and uneducated. He asked if we could help. That's when I realized if we must do something for the underprivileged. I thought of EduRight coz everyone has the right to education.

A child's socio economic status should not determine his or her future potential. Education is the basic right and we are proud to support #eduright
Privileged are we for the education we have received, why not help the unprivileged and be fortunate to do so via Eduright and better their lives.
