‘candle lighters’
to candles awaiting
to be lit

Ler Foundation helps communities (candles) to create a light of prosperity through education support by linking them with mentors (candle lighters).

Our Mission

Ler Foundation was founded on the premise of spreading the light of prosperity within our society. We believe that we can make our society brighter and more prosperous if those of us who are privileged to have our candles kindled could do as simple as lighting the candles of those whose candles are either dimmed or off.

Thus Ler Foundation is in the business of ‘connecting’ candle lighters to numerous candles waiting to be lit.

A well-educated society, is a well lit society

Ler Foundation believes that a well-educated society is a well-lit society. To this end, we bring light to the lives of bright, needy, and deserving students by offering educational support.

We offer education scholarships complete with a mentorship program to make sure that the beneficiaries are guided to excel in their studies as well as in life in general. In most cases, such beneficiaries are orphans who lack proper guardian structures.
