LightForce International believes that ordinary people can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of those in need.
How it all started
LightForce International was founded over 30 years ago. The work of LightForce began in Poland in 1980, during the Cold War years, and touched Czech and Slovak Republics, Romania, Estonia, Ukraine, Hungary, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Kosova, & Croatia in the following 20 years.
At the dawn of the new millennium the work extended worldwide. LightForce has placed workers with other organisations in Africa, India, Mongolia, New Zealand and Nepal. Currently our major areas of involvement are Albania, Uganda & India.
In the past LightForce International has successfully completed projects with World Food Programme, Unicef and Memisa Belgium with funding from the Belgian Government. Projects have ranged from emergency aid/feeding/shelter to development of education/health infrastructure/provision of resources and capacity building.
What we do now…
The work of LightForce International focuses on education, supporting vulnerable children and creating sustainable futures, all of this is underpinned by our Christian faith. We work across three countries and are dedicated to changing people’s futures.
Uganda– Since 2003, we have been working in Lira, Northern Uganda. Our projects focus upon education, school sponsorship, vocational skills training, support for vulnerable children and farming.
Albania– During its time in Lezhe, Albania, LightForce has developed a very desirable facility to host and run Children’s Camps and Conferences. LightForce is always looking for opportunities to serve the wider community and has done this through the distribution of cattle, providing support for vulnerable families and donating food to the elderly.
India– we support two projects in India- Indian Gospel Mission and Home of Faith. These projects aim to provide housing for orphaned children, free tuition to local families, skills training for women with HIV or women who were sex workers as well as supporting some of India’s most vulnerable people groups.
