One Life to Love envisions a world where every child has a home, a family, and equal opportunity to be and become who they are destined to be.

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to provide every abandoned and at-risk child with safety, education, nutrition and a nurturing home environment.
We provide love, care & support to orphans with special needs, free education & nutrition to at-risk girls and street children, and relief services to homeless families. We tirelessly work toward preventing human trafficking and empower vulnerable people, ensuring every child has the opportunity to thrive and lead fulfilling lives.

Why One Life to Love?

We are Run by Volunteers

We don’t invest in offices, fundraising, or salaried workers, ensuring the biggest impact of your donation.

Open-Door Policy

The doors of OLTL are always opened to provide for any child in need. On a daily basis, we educate and nourish approximately 400 children.

Filling the Gap

There are more than 100,000 children on the streets in Delhi alone, causing a a severe shortage of shelter homes. OLTL’s Home of Hope is the only home in Delhi catering to the needs of street children with special needs.
