Mission: From Darkness to Light, Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of rural Ethiopians through social, educational and economic development projects. We collaborate with other non-profit organizations to provide wider support and engage in mutually beneficial activities and projects. In cooperation with rural villagers, we support and help organize community-based programs in literacy, education, culture, vocational training, nutrition and health care.
Programs: We have teamed up with World Vision, a major NGO with a presence in the area of the proposed water development project. A feasibility study has been conducted in February 2010 by the Ethiopian Government's water resource development office. The project will assist eight villages in the area, and a total of nearly 8000 people. The proposed project includes deep well drilling and construction, submersible pump and generator provision and installation, reservoir construction, pressure main and distribution pipe lining, eight public fountains construction and cattle troughs construction. FDL is responsible for 10% of the total project costs of $220,000, which is $22,000.
