Our mission is to make education accessible to the children of Dongora Morocho, Ethiopia. Our method is simple.  We relocate children from the village to the bustling city of Awassa and  pay their  tuition to a private k to 12 education academy.  The children will live in private residences under the supervision of our Ethiopian Program Director, Hagirso Desta.  Mr. Desta is fluent in the native language of the village as well as Amharic and English. Our vision is through education and language immersion not available in the village that these children will complete a proper education and enter the work force to become the generation that lifts their village to new heights.

Shining Light co-founders, Robert Levant, and his wife, Kathy, have personally funded this opportunity for the siblings of their son who was born in Dongora Morocho and the three children recently completed their third full year.  We now want to make this dream a reality for other children.
