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.

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.

Some key initiatives taken by LAMP

Helping Adolescent girls – by creating interwoven pathways for them to remain connected with education, and subsequently complete schooling.

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

Helping tribal children – by creating mother-tongue-based learning material for tribal children enrolled in pre-primary and primary levels.

Helping children impacted by distress migration by mapping migration and ensuring children stay back for elementary schooling.
