Who We Are

Light of Life Trust is a non-governmental organisation established in 2002 by Founder & Managing Trustee Villy Doctor, with a vision to transform the lives of underprivileged rural communities in India.

Light of life Trust through its holistic development approach is looking at supporting and strengthening the capacities of its beneficiaries to break out of the vicious generational cycle of poverty that rural India is reeling under.

Through its ongoing efforts, the organization is looking at building a generation of youth who are literate, confident, and knowledgeable of the world in which they live and who are able to make effective career choices that would lead them to gainful means of livelihood and thus make them and their families financially independent and stable.



The Trust aims to empower these communities through an integrated model of education, skill training programmes and health care in rural areas.

Beneficiary GroupChildren
Beneficiary DescriptionAnando Project aims to realize the untapped potential of India’s rural underprivileged children, recognize them as a major human resource and empower them. Initiated in 2005 with 25 children, the programme till date has impacted 12627 children directly and 108739 community members indirectly across 780 villages in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. In rural India the highest percentage of out of school children is in the age group 11 years to 18 years which increases as they grow older due to various reasons like – looking after their younger siblings and their homes, as parents are daily wage earners, earning an extra income for the family, no access to secondary schools, etc. The future of a young country like India is in the hands of this age group and hence the need to address the alarming issue of dropouts at the secondary school level becomes the key to the development of young India.
ImpactIndia has the largest number of out of school children in the world with approximately 5.55 crore of whom (i.e. 36%) drop out between the age group 11-18 years, of which, 4.65 crore are from rural India (NSSO 62nd round) who are not the focus of the Indian Governments intervention in the field of Education nor are they given due encouragement or support from their families who are struggling to make ends meet for their survival.
The issue of out of school children has raised some major concerns for secondary school education, as in comparison, enrolment percentages are relatively higher in primary schools. Secondary education is given less importance today, in terms of no special programs dedicated to it like the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan. Secondary Education is a link between elementary and higher education, also it is an important step towards vocational education and empowerment.
In spite of the school dropout rates being higher in the rural areas there are only a few NGOs currently working towards addressing the needs of this critical segment.
