“To be without knowledge, is to be without light.”

-Somali Proverb

Knowledge is as essential as food and water. It gives life to the mind and empowers the community.

Al Hanan Orphanage School


Al Hanan Orphanage School is located in Gardo, Somalia. The school serves students that have lost either both or one of their parents. Due to a lack of funding, the school was planning to shut its doors. Lighting the Way stepped in to fund annual scholarships for girls attending the school. Moved by LTW’s actions, local individuals began to provide contributions to keep the school afloat.
