Aishwarya has delivered more than 50000+ hours of volunteering through projects and programmes.

Dubai resident Aishwarya Joshi is seen as a "humanity architect" after she progressed towards an innovative career path, to evolve into a successful social entrepreneur in the UAE.

She reiterates that "UAE has allowed her to live her passion for humanity and spread wings even outside the country through her humble social enterprise The Lighthouse Cohort". "This is precisely the reason I call UAE home away from home because it doesn't judge me but encourages and guides to achieve my vision for humanity at large," she said.

Aishwarya has delivered more than 50,000+ hours of volunteering and mobilised humanitarian aid worth more than Dh950, 000 peryear within the UAE for local causes.  She has facilitated more than 20 humanitarian aid containers  per year from the UAE to countries like Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Guinea, Bangladesh, Iraqi Kurdistan and similar conflict zones.
