Lighthouse Ministries is a great nonprofit organization. I attended two of their workshops - one dealing with drug and substabce abuse prevention, and the other, helping to reduce violence and crime in our community. There were over 60 young people in attendance at each workshop. As a former drug abuser myself, my life was changed just by attending the drug workshop. At the other workshop on crime prevention in Memphis, TN, over 25 young people agreed to relinguish violence and work towards mutual tolerance, peace, and good citizens. At each workshop, food and drinks were provided freely to all attendees. Today, I am telling other young people about the dangers of substance and drug abuse. Thanks to this fine charity - I am a changed man from drug abuse.

I have been voluntering for Lighthouse Ministries, Inc in N'Zerekore, Guinea, West Africa. We have been educating the local populace on HIV/AIDS prevention; educating against combatting the deadly disease, malaria. We have also distributed up to date, 5600, mosquito nets. This is a very good organization. We still need more mosquito nets, and clothes.
