Light a LAMP

Help illuminate a child’s future.

As we gear up to celebrate India’s festive season with the lighting of lamps, let’s take the opportunity to brighten up the lives of disadvantaged children with AIF’s Light a LAMP campaign.

One in five migrants in India is a child. ‘Light a LAMP’ helps AIF raise funds for its Learning And Migration Program (LAMP) which addresses the complex issues faced by children at-risk of migration, and also proposes to bridge the learning loss accumulated due to school closures during the pandemic by providing them with the education, resources, care, and support they need to break the cycle of poverty.

In its 10th year now, ‘Light a LAMP’ has helped thousands change the lives of millions for the better.

Our Learning And Migration Program

Supports Adolescent Girls by creating interwoven pathways for them to remain connected with education and subsequently complete schooling.

Promotes STEM Education in Learning Resource Centers to further equity in student access to educational resources.

Nurtures Tribal Children by creating mother-tongue-based learning material for those enrolled in pre-primary and primary levels.

Runs Seasonal Hostels to help children stay back and focus on their elementary schooling.

Light a LAMP by donating or creating your own fundraiser, and help illuminate a child’s life by rebuilding their future with education and opportunity.
