Video Summary tells the story--Los Gatos to Windsor to Zambia

In 2013, a young Zambian teen in the Sub-Saharan plain of Africa was found living on the streets after he lost his parents and extended family to disease.  Dave Keating's ministry, who has partnered with Stop Hunger Now and Lighting for Literacy, provided him with food, shelter, and support.  As Dave described to us, this young man had no hope or future.

 

After receiving LFL and basic electronics training, he went to a local school which had never had electricity or lighting in their classroom.  He installed the compact renewable LFL lighting system, lighting up their classroom, and he became their local hero, role model and champion for change.

 

The life of a young man with no hope or future . . .

transformed hopes and futures with a simple act of learning and giving!
