It began with a small group of five concerned individuals who wanted to reach out to women and children—the most vulnerable section of the Indian rural society. The goal was to empower this section of society with sustainable and supportive programmes. With Villy Doctor as the founding member, The Light of Life Trust, a non-government organisation came into existence in 2002. The key steps were to educate, empower and equip, so as to lead to long-term change.
Development of rural communities through a holistic approach leading to education, empowerment and employability.
- To educate underprivileged children and provide a nurturing environment for orphans and homeless children.
- To empower destitute women with life skills so they can break the poverty cycle.

- To create a hospice for the terminally ill, a haven of comfort and tranquillity.
