About Us

Light In Life

Be a Light to light a Life

The groundwork for LIGHT in LIFE began in early 2013, when a few like-minded, motivated people having common interests who live and work here in Switzerland joined together for a common cause and goal. We are dedicated to extending our hand and making a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Our mission is to offer shelter to the homeless, ensuring they have a place to call home. We are committed to providing underprivileged children with access to education, empowering them to shape their own futures. Moreover, we strive to enhance mobility for physically challenged individuals, enabling them to experience newfound independence.

Our vision is to bring hope to those who don’t have and to make a difference in the lives of the needy, deprived and the underprivileged, thus giving them a better environment to live, believe and grow.

We hope for a better tomorrow when the darkness will give way to light of LIGHT in LIFE



We wish to reach out and serve the needy, to provide the homeless with homes, to give underprivileged children education, to make the immobile physically challenged people mobile and to give deprived encouragement, thus bringing hope, changing lives, creating a brighter future, bridging the gap between the haves and the have-notes.


“Together we are stronger”

We live here in Switzerland for a long time and we can very well compare the both sides of rich and poor. The situation of this disparity often confronts us. Donations made individually have many shortcomings and limitations. It doesn’t matter how big the amount is, but every single cents is valuable. So we thought of doing it collectively. This thought led us to form a charity organisation by which we may be able to do great things.

Message From President

Shaji Adathala

The best things in life just happen. It is beautiful to watch water flow from the hilltops and meander through the plains to reach its final destination, the sea. In this journey, no drop of water can be differentiated. How beautiful it would be if the humans around the world are not differentiated on their financial status. We have been blessed with eyes with which we can never see the expression on our own face, but it is for us to see the pain and sufferings of the people around us. We have also been blessed with strong hands with which we can never lift us, but it can be used to uplift the needy. As much as we could use our eyes and hands for our needs, we could use them to see the needy and uplift them too. We believe that we need to use our inner light to see the thousands of deprived lives around us. To quote Martin Luther King Jr., “Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that”. We at LIGHT in LIFE have committed ourselves to start lighting lives, thus creating a ripple effect with the firm belief that the darkness of helplessness will be eradicated from the globe. We strongly believe that each one of us can be the light that helps others see. It is what gives life its most profound significance.
