We are a christian non-profit organization whose mission is to build together opportunities that promote peace in the area we live. We encourage christian believers from their local churches to shine with activities that provide to the needy rescue, healing and hope and become social and economic development agents in a specific area according to their gifts and skills. We believe that every believer has been empowered by God to change his world and shine by supplying for peace building and love. With the expertise of highly skilled and innovative committed staff, World Light Family works with donors, churches, volunteers and other partners to reflect deliberately the role God called us to take by connecting each of our activity to its biblical foundation.
World Light Family partner with local churches in the outreach bible teaching projects by bringing in people’s life the gospel of salvation, healing and hope and, by the promotion of bible knowledge through improved music and bible learning. Through this program and in partnership with the host churches, we ensure the increased number of people saved; increased testimonies resulted from faith in Jesus-Christ and perfect knowledge of Word of God written in the bible.
We accept the bible as the revealed Word of God, the All-Sufficient rule of faith and practice and adopt this statement as fundamental truth and doctrine for the organization. As the promotion of faith based on the Word of God written in the bible is one of the major tool for building peace, hope and love, World Light Family boosts the spread of the knowledge of the scriptures.
We envisions more projects in development assistance: Food security, water and sanitation, environment, health and nutrition, education, micro-enterprise, good governance and also intervention in humanitarian emergency according to funds available as well as we find generous donors and have qualified staff to provide a work plan to which we can all be held accountable.
We operate in Sweden, Rwanda, Burundi and Democratic Republic of Congo. With the global partnership, the organization joins together all activities from Sweden. The organization allocates managerial accountability and assesses progress as: transparent planned goals, clear objectives and measures the progress as well as the result. These are the way to express how our work makes difference by providing the greatest impact in the individual, social and economic transformation. Each objective have a series of performance measures under them so that we can clearly measure how we are doing and, each performance indicator mentions the person responsible.
We also empower local churches to work for peace by lightning in the area and the world with the gift or skills they received from God that can impact the individual transformation. We maintain this identity as christians while being sensitive to the diverse contexts in the community in expressing that identity.
World Light Family started in 2011 under the initiative that was to contribute to the improvement of the lives of the underprivileged in the area. At this time the founder was an evangelist and preacher of the gospel in Rwanda. He started to share the vision of this organization to those who were able to understand it by explaining what the Word of God says to believers about inheriting the heaven:
We believers, we will not inherit the heaven because of our big number of teachings or big anointing for healing or miracle; but we will come into heaven because of a character we built in us evolving from the Word of God that end up by producing fruit. It is only with this fruit from the seed which is the Word of God that we can operate with God’s love and, this love push us to come in help to those in need. We can read this in Matthew 25:31-36 and Matthew 7: 21-23.
With the support of some friends, World Light Family started in small scale by helping young children from poor families in Rwanda to attend school, paying for them school fees and school materials. The organization is growing progressively with the number of people who understand the vision, the reason to partner with us and join us by participating as a donor, volunteer, advisor or as an operator to the field.
The organization’s founder is the responsible pastor of one of Evangelical and Pentecostal Churches in Gothenburg called World Revival Center. This church is located in many countries in Europe.
World Light Family is operational today in Rwanda and Sweden and is planning other projects in D.R. Congo and Burundi. In partnership with churches having a good structure in the poor community, we support, train, equip and monitor them to meet the socio and economic needs of their communities by showing God’s love to recipients.
The main office is located in Sweden where World Light Family gets together all activities; manages resources to support other offices and partners and plan future activities in different countries as well as in Sweden. The new Board of Directors was held in January 2016 and established for a period of five year renewable. The organization address is located in the center of the city of Gothenburg, Ekelundsgatan3, 2358, P.O. Box 40315 Gothenburg-Sweden.
For being accountable toward the community we serve, toward our partners and donors; we conduct a baseline survey before we begin a program, we design each program to measure progress, we set progress indicators to compare with the baseline, along the implementation we measure the progress and share result with members of the community and partners so they can be aware and validate changes, we get feedback from the communities members through qualitative interviews and focus groups discussions. We also provide independent evaluators of financial management, program performance, fundraising and governance of charities. Governance of charities evaluates charities according to standards to ensure accountability and transparency of their members.
We also have a general assembly composed by all the members of organization held each year in which all the operational and financial reports are presented.
Each penny in our hands on behalf of the needy from a donor is sacred and is not our own. We manage faithfully and purposely who ever and whatever God bring in our hand for bringing maximum benefit to the needy. We meet and speak honestly with donors, partners and beneficiaries. We strive for consistency between what we say and what we do. We are open and factual in our dealing with donors’ communities, project communities, churches, government and the public at large. We impose to ourselves high standards of professional competence and accept the need to be accountable through appropriate structure for achieving these standards.
All our activities are funded by people willing to support us, church members, public or private organizations in various forms. As the need on the field is very big, we receive contributions in cash or in-kind (materials) from friends around the world with the really need to help someone in poor conditions. We strive to get contributions from public sectors too as granted proposals or concept papers.
