LIGHT-UP INTERNATIONAL e.V. is a privately run NGO. It was founded in Berlin by a team of young people aspiring to improve the well-being of street children and/or children living in socially disadvantaged families, who are deprived of the childhood they deserve. Article 27 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child recognizes “the right of every child to a standard of living adequate for the child’s physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development.”

Our projects aim to bring some “LIGHT & HOPE” into the lives of children living in difficult conditions (e.g., street children in India or orphans in Turkey).

Below you can find more details related to the individual projects, e.g., LIGHT-UP MUMBAI.

Donating solar lamps and ear plugs to street children.

Donating school material to socially disadvantaged orphans.

I will treasure the shining, grateful eyes of children in need in Mumbai (after receiving a small donation) as one of the most beautiful memories of my life, my mind and my heart!

As Europeans, we are blessed with good fortune and have the privilege of enjoying a certain standard of education. As far as it is in my power, I see it as my calling to support children and young people worldwide, who are not blessed with such fortune and privilege, by making my own contribution!
