Volunteer

LightForce International helps people in need. We help the poor
rebuild their lives by providing aid, skills training and the creation of employment.

By so doing, we also provide the opportunity, and the inspiration, to enable volunteers to undertake humanitarian and Christian work in practical ways. Serving others in need is truly a life changing experience.

From a short term trip to six months the choice is yours. You can be part of an experience that will impact someone’s life -and change yours at the same time!

Over the years we have facilitated hundreds to go and have hands on experience. For most it was an invaluable and unforgettable experience and for many it was life changing. You can’t change the world but you can make a difference in someone’s life! LightForce can give you the opportunity to do it. Follow the links to discover current opportunities.
