LIGHT GIVES HEAT INC
April 11, 2011

MISSION

Empowering Africans through the encouragement of economic sustainability and creative endeavors. Motivating people in the west to "be the change they want to see in the world."

Vision
To See Africa rebuilt and renewed from the inside out and to see people in the West living with Hope!

The women of SUUBI have shown us a great deal about what life looks like when it is lived with hope. They have proved to us over and over again that our past does not determine our future, that circumstances in our lives don’t have to affect the love and joy we live with, and that hope is a choice!

These women make incredible jewelry out of recycled paper. Providing an income for their families, not a hand out. Light Gives Heat buy's weekly from the women which offers a consistent income

Also teaching English and literacy classes.
