Empowering People, Changing Lives

Fundraising for building a school for girls in Burkina Faso is one of our priorities!  Our first phase building goal is $30,000.  We are currently at about $6000!  Update 6/2017 We have purchased land for this project!  Thank you to all who have contributed!

In some countries the education of girls is not a priority.  What hope can they have for a future when they are illiterate with no skills? Lighting the Path offers education and training and gives hope back!.

Please join us!

Lighting The Path Enterprises is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to fight poverty and empower marginalized populations with education, skills, business training, equipment and supplies to help them help themselves while showing the love of Christ.

One of the easiest ways to help others is to share knowledge or a skill which you have.  Let others lead you to what they would find most useful to help empower them.  Take a little time and teach, support, share and build relationships with those in need and you will be amazed at how you can empower others to improve their own life and how much you will enrich your own life!

God sent His son to establish His kingdom on earth and Jesus said we are to continue his work.  We are to love in a way that others amazed by it, inspired by it and wish to be part of it.

An essential element of the best outreach programs

Is empowering those you serve

​Lighting the Path implements empowerment projects and invites anyone who wishes to join us in this work.  We welcome all people who have a heart for service to help us empower individuals and positively impact families.  

Our outreach efforts in Africa need your help immediately. Funds to construct a women and teen girl's education center are needed.  Supplies for empowerment projects and education are needed along with humanitarian aid supplies
