About Light of Life

The Light of Life Preschool is an oasis in the midst of what is one of India’s largest Red Light Districts with over 5,000 sex workers.

Serving as a pre-primary day shelter, the smallest children of prostitutes, between ages 3 – 5 years old, are able to come to Light of Life where the loving staff trains them in life skills, hygiene, education basics, and so much more, in a safe environment. Without this preschool, these small children would be forced to wander the dangerous streets of the city alone and unsupervised while their mothers sleep after a night of soliciting ‘clients’.

The pre-school operates 5 days a week, Monday – Friday. Daily activities include arts & crafts times and a hot lunch, which may be the only hot meal that they receive that day.
