LifeLines India was launched in 2006, under the founder partnership of British Telecom, Cisco Systems and OneWorld. The ICT-led helpline programme commenced with strategic objectives to:

  • Increase livelihood and income opportunities for rural communities through access to key decisive information
  • Create a sustainable delivery model by concurrently creating a contextual knowledge base as information exchange takes place through the service
LifeLines India leverages a mix of internet and telephone technologies - to provide essential and demand-based information, advice and guidance to remote and rural communities in India - through the medium of "voice, in the local language and within 24 hours."
