What can we do for our armed forces? Those young men and women who stand as sentinels guarding the land, sky and seas of our nation? Those sons and daughters who give their today for our better tomorrow. What, indeed can we do for them, except keep them in our grateful thoughts, words and deeds and spread their saga of valour which has kept the Indian tricolour flying majestically, always and everytime.
These thoughts prompted the journey of Lakshya Foundation. It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. We at Lakshya Foundation have taken this small yet determined step to bridge the gap between civilians and the armed forces by fostering an emotional connect.
Lakshya Foundation organised "Pratyek Sainik Ek Panati" or "Every Soldier One Lamp" program at Charkop, Sector 2 ground. We received huge response from citizens who turned out in numbers in spite of Diwali evening!
We have taken more than 600 civilians over the last 15 expeditions to Ladakh to let them experience the harsh terrain and actual battle zone where our brave soldiers fought for every inch of their motherland.
We started this programme in 2012 in Malad, Mumbai. We felicitate the Armed Forces Personnel, Parents and Wives of soldiers during our presentation for this event.The event has since been held in various location
