LIFT is not just a rite of passage, but rather a lifetime journey.

LIFT (Leading India’s Future Today) was inspired by the dream of four Indian priests who looked at their struggling community and orphaned children and asked; what more can we do to make an impact?

For over 15 years, LIFT in India has been able to grow and flourish due to this ongoing relationship with U.S. donors. Since its inception, LIFT has educated on average 70 students per year, supporting students in primary through graduate school. More than 34 students have completed their undergraduate university education with LIFT. A number of these graduates are members of LIFT 2.0, a group that gives back to the program through donations and mentorship of current students.
