Discovering Light was founded in 2008 by a diverse group of men: A successful business owner. A retired shipbuilder. A former navy pilot. A pastor. Fueled by God’s light, all sought to mitigate the devastating need for clean, safe water in southern Ethiopia. It quickly became evident; however, that water alone was not enough. Communities were thirsty, but not mainly for water. They were thirsty for life. Poverty was not solely attributable to resources, but rather a lack of empowerment. Discovering Light’s purpose immediately changed. The focus became supporting and networking with organizations abroad that inspired communities to utilize the resources already at their disposal to propel themselves from their conditions — and discover God along the way.
