We are on a mission to


Provide quality education to children and sustained healthcare support to people from socio-economically weaker sections of society in rural Bangalore.


Leverage the intersectionality of education, healthcare, and empowerment of rural women to build a progressive community.


Engage, employ and build agency in women from rural communities to address the massive learning and healthcare disparities, thereby creating an equitable platform for socio-economic development.

Our programs

Elevate is the flagship program of the foundation that provides a comprehensive learning program in English literacy for primary school children studying in rural government schools.

Kickstart is a unified program delivery system that identifies and trains semi-educated women from within the communities that OBLF engages with. These women are then subsequently employed as either community teachers at OBLF schools or as frontline health workers in the public health initiatives. Over the last 14 years, OBLF has trained and skilled more than 400+ women, and currently employs close to a hundred of these women in its programs across Education and Healthcare.

OBLF’s Nurture program works closely with highly marginalized communities by identifying and focusing on critical elements, such as education, healthcare, and sanitation to enable a better standard of living for the community.

The mission of the Remedy program is to ensure sustainable and equitable healthcare access for highly marginalized rural communities, and reduce non-communicable diseases through curative, preventive and palliative support.
