Igniting Women’s Lives in the Developing World
Women in the developing world face extraordinary challenges in providing for themselves and their families. Their ability to confront these challenges is directly linked to their health condition and level of education.
The purpose of LIGHT MY FIRE is to donate funds to programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America that seek to improve the health and educational opportunities of women and girls.
Funds will be given to one or two programs annually, based on an assessment by the Director and three-member Advisory Board of LIGHT MY FIRE.
The Director of LIGHT MY FIRE is Dr. Ellen Boneparth who has had numerous careers academia, diplomacy, direction of nonprofit organizations, and writing. Currently retired, she now devote herself to the work and continuing growth of LIGHT MY FIRE.
