Welcome to Lightup
Lightup Foundation is a U K based charity.
We simply target community projects that make a genuine difference to the lives of local people.
Lightup team has been working actively to inspire and empower young people in the U K to take actions which create positive change and real impact in their communities. By providing a range of tailored support including counselling, training, mentoring and other useful activities that will help increase their skills.
We believe in giving back and we encourage the act of volunteerism.
We are always working:
• To empower young people to be instruments in the delivery of community development aid, not just the beneficiaries of it;
• To support and enable young people successfully to complete simple development projects with peer/community support.
• To promote stronger bonds within communities where inclusive relationships build trust and mutual support and create communities in which everyone is valued. thereby preventing fear, mistrust and social breakdown.
We are all welcome to 2017.
We are currently working on COMMUNITY YOUTH MENTORING AND TRAINING CHAT in Aberdeen.
Lightup Bag Of Hope Project
Young people in Scotland and Uganda were involved in the decoration of the BOH in 2016, the exercise will continue this year and it will extend to many other countires across the world.
We continue to promote the UN Rights of the child and encourage support for the children in need.
Congratulations to Lightup team for making the "The Largest Canvas Bag in the world" tagged Bag Of Hope (BOH)

Lightup Foundation Plans to rehabilitate Chibok Girls on Arrival
The recent abduction of over 200 Chibok girls has left us and other organisations and communities unbearably sad. Lightup Foundation strongly condemns this wicked act perpetrated by boko haram. There is no excuse whatsoever for criminal activities and all perpetrators of criminal activities must face the consequences of their actions.
Our plan is to send in a team of Psychiatrists from the United Kingdom into Nigeria as soon as the Chibok girls are found. we intend to offer the girls Trauma Focussed Therapy. If possible we will also be interested in training a team of Nigerian doctors to continue to offer this service to the girls while the UK doctors are away.
We therefore wish to use this medium to invite interested Psychiatrist doctors in the UK and Nigeria who are available and willing to volunteer their service to the girls to contact Lightup via firstname.lastname@example.org
