Lit the Light Trust is a registered Nonprofit organization exclusively working for the betterment of visually impaired persons, It is a volunteer-driven organization involving youth volunteerism more than 2000+ volunteers are engaged every year for helping visually challenged people in Scribing, Audio recording, Identifying Hidden talents & promoting special skills, Inclusive job placement and career development.
It was the vision of a single person, S.N. Barath , that sparked this endeavor. After attending reading sessions for a year, a visually impaired student of Government High School in Poonamalle scored 960 in his class 12 board examination. This was an eye-opener for Barath. He now realised that a little help could go a long way in helping such students.
In 2014, along with a few of his colleagues RamKumar & Ravikant joined hands in this journey of social Service. Lit the Light formed as a volunteer group from 26th Jan, 2014. This organization is actively involved in the empowerment of the Visually Impaired. Officially registered as charitable trust with Tamilnadu Government in 2017.
Mr S.N.Barath was honoured by Saksham Sadhana Award 2021 at Madurai for the relentless remarkable services rendered for the persons with disability community
