Mission Statement:

Shining A Light empowers women through employment training, education and spiritual enrichment enabling them to impact their family and community.

Women to Work Program

Distributing money to those in need can provide help for a short term, but it does not provide a sustainable solution for meeting lifetime needs. Located in Arusha, Tanzania, Shining A Light’s, “Women to Work” program, offers women the opportunity to learn a trade and education in health care and disease prevention, money management, business and literacy classes to assist women in providing economic independence in caring for their families. Engaging women with opportunities to earn and learn, with guidance, breaks the cycle of poverty, paving the way for a lifetime of success – empowerment that changes a life, a family and a community.tanzania-w-globe
