Human life is precious.
Come join the cause and
Save Lives.

Close to 500,000 people lose their lives to accidents on land and in water every year in India. 

The Rashtriya Life Saving Society (India) is working to reduce the number of accidental deaths in India by empowering people with first-aid and lifesaving skills. Since 1998, we have trained and certified over 400,000 people in various lifesaving programmes, so that they can save precious lives by being first responders.

We aim to reduce the incidence of accidents on land and drowning in India by:

  • Promoting lifesaving and first-aid awareness and training programmes for everyone
  • Empowering underprivileged local youth with lifesaving skills for a sustainable source of livelihood
  • Providing advice and education to Government institutions, Corporate, Educational institutions, and individuals on drowning prevention and first-aid

We aim to create a lifesaver in every home in India.

    Every year in India, close to 500,000 people lose their lives to accidents. At least 50% of these lives can be SAVED if help reaches them within the first 15 minutes.

    At RLSS(I), since 1998, we are striving hard to create a lifesaver in every Indian home who can become a first responder to an accident victim and save a life by timely intervention. Our #SupportALifesaver campaign is aimed at inviting people to contribute to this noble cause.
