Lighting the Path is dedicated to empowering marginalized people with education, training and supplies to help them help themselves.  We do this by innovative programs and training which meet the people where they are and builds them up to be successful, productive individuals.  It is out of the generosity of others, that this organization has become so successful and we would love for you to join us in these efforts!


Fundraising for building the school in Burkina Faso has passed the $20,000 mark which has allowed us to procure the land for the project and begin planning the first phase of the development of the school campus.  This first phase includes constructing a dormitory style building to give housing to homeless girls.  Please join us in changing lives!  We cannot do this without the support of people like you! 100% of your donation will go to projects for those in need.

​We are currently looking for a location to establish an office and programs in the St. Louis, MO region, please contact us if you can assist with this. 

​Lighting the Path is a 501(c)3 Non profit  All donations are tax deductible
