GlobalLight Projects assists people in the developing world by means of the application of simple technologies.
We will carry this out by
Our work will enhance the lives of people through improvement of community infrastructure. This will particularly benefit women and children who suffer most in societies with limited resources. For example, girls are kept from school in favour of boys. They consequently do most of the manual labour (ie hauling water and cutting firewood) while never learning modern nutrition and health care (for example), which negatively affects the health of the next generation. These are issues of justice, economy and development. By improving education, the future of the whole community is improved.
Working closely with local community leaders, we will provide solutions that are desirable and sustainable in local contexts without creating dependencies. For example, electricity provided in the homes of school teachers, will be paid for at market rates thus making the installation sustainable. Projects will be installed only with the consent of local leadership and where there is agreement to implement strategies of sustainability. Realizing that a variety of programs and tools are necessary for developing the two-thirds world, we will endeavour to work with others, both national and international, applying others' resources when possible and sharing our resources and expertise as applicable. Whenever possible, we desire to develop partnerships, both strategically and for specific projects. Therein lies the potential for better lives in the developing world, in breaking the cycle of poverty which limits entire countries.
