Will you join us in making a difference?
Together with the help of people like you we are changing communities, giving dignity and making a better future for generations to come. Lighting the Path is approaching poverty differently. Empowering with education, skills, small business training and supplies to start a small enterprise and earn an income. Every person wants to feel valuable and competent and, if given a chance, will work hard to have a good life. Our vision is to empower people to provide for themselves and their family and to see them flourish and live out their full, God-given potential. To accomplish this vision, we engage and challenge societal norms. We work to alleviate suffering through action oriented work respecting cultural and personal differences, along with caring for physical and emotional needs.
We have empowered over 525 women with skills to start a small enterprise and the knowledge to train others to do the same.
We have formed and empowered over 22 women’s associations to work as a combined team of different strengths to make a product and run a sustainable enterprise.
In our newest Giving Hope Project, we have taught over 24 refugee women to sew and make products to start their own small business or gain employment.
The Girls for Girls project provides washable and reusable feminine hygiene kits to girls who have no supplies to deal with her monthly menstrual cycle. We have sent over 650 hygiene kits to schools, clinics and organizations in Zimbabwe, the Congo, Burkina Faso, Uganda, Malawi and Ghana.
We have built and opened a technical school for girls and young women which allows them to train and learn skills to run a successful and sustainable small business that will allow them to take care of themselves and have a brighter future. Our first class is in progress and we plan to continue to expand our enrollment with the completion of a housing building.
