LK FOUNDATION TRUST

Bridging the gap between hope and possibility!

The passion behind LK Foundation Trust stems from the belief of its Founder and Trustees that everyone’s life has ups and downs, and at some point of time everybody needs a helping hand. During good times we are surrounded by people, but during bad times, one may not find the same people to reach out to. Such bad times could be of varied nature and could relate to financial, medical, legal or educational aspects and it is often seen that many people face hardships mainly due to lack of timely advice, support or guidance. This could even lead to the vulnerable taking unpleasant decisions under stressful circumstances.

With this view point of enabling the distressed overcome hardships in life, the Trust desires to extend a helping hand during their times of crisis. It shall be our endeavour to foster and promote familial and communal well-being and advancement for those contending with significant trauma or adversity. Towards this end, we wish to bring Philanthropic Experts such as Doctors, Lawyers, Scientists, Teachers, Social Service Providers, NGOs, etc. and the Help Seekers onto one platform to help resolve various issues, thereby creating a happy and peaceful society.

Our Mission

LK Foundation Trust works through a platform to save lives, defeat poverty,
achieve social justice and helping the distressed.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope and social justice where poverty has been overcome
and all people live with honour & dignity.

Shout For Help is the platform (www.shoutforhelp.org) where anyone having any issues in the categories listed in the website can register as a Help Seeker and secure timely help from our registered Philanthropic Experts in various domains such as Financial, Legal, Medical and Educational and get their related issues resolved.
