Light From Africa Launches Dignity Drive to Mark 20th Anniversary

In 2004, Anthony Record and his wife, Carole Turner-Record, founded Light From Africa (LFA) after being profoundly inspired by a talk given by Rachel Mash, the founder of Fikelela Youth and Child Centre. Fikelela, established in 2000, served as a beacon of hope in response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the Khayelitsha community. It marked LFA’s initial project of support. Over the years, LFA has extended its reach beyond borders, initiating a variety of urban and rural outreach projects that empower communities across the Western Cape, South Africa.

We will be marking 20 years of Impact in 2024, and to mark this significant milestone, LFA is launching a special investment drive to fund impactful initiatives. As our first project, we have chosen to upgrade the bathroom facilities at the Fikelela Youth and Child Centre in Khayelitsha. The bathroom upgrade project aims to create safe, clean, and dignified spaces, contributing to the overall well-being of the children and youth served by the centre.

With the collective support of donors, volunteers, and the community, this appeal seeks to create lasting improvements in the lives of those served by Fikelela, leaving a legacy of enhanced dignity, safety, and well-being.
