help change lives


Lighting the Path is dreaming of a world without poverty.

Join in our dream of changing lives and alleviating poverty!  You can make a difference!  Donations to Lighting the Path are used for empowering women, building schools, providing educational supplies, offering business school courses, and teaching women skills they can use to earn an income and change lives.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a day to make a difference and join with organizations changing lives. Your contribution will directly help change the life of someone in need by helping us build schools, teach skills and meet needs!  We empower people and change lives by giving a hand up, not a hand out!

Donate to the Girls for Girls Project

Through this project, we teach women to sew reusable, washable sanitary pads for their own poverty-stricken communities. You can use the form above to donate any amount you’d like. Your donation will help us to fund supplies, training programs, and shipping costs.

We are always accepting donations of reusable sanitary pads. We distribute them to women and girls who are in need of them through schools, orphanages and women’s health and birthing clinics . We have distributed pads to girls and women in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Uganda and Malawi. and will review requests received.
