I do believe since Lightforce One came into our lives, people’s thinking in the village changed. The children are now confident that they have a future and they now have big dreams of what they want to be after their education. Members of the village learned that there is an entry point for them to do business like poultry. I have also learned to think bigger in all that I do. Also, people have changed the way they deal with nature.

The Light Within Us

Lightforce One will be expanding its reach to help the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, where the community suffers an 80-90% unemployment rate and is consistently ranked as the poorest area in the country.  A staggering 80% of families are affected by alcoholism. 

Help Lightforce One raise $300,000 over the next year. The money goes towards establishing substance abuse recovery meetings, insulating homes, supporting a farming co-op, and purchasing farming equipment in Pine Ridge, and continuing the work in Uganda building a new campus and introducing more revenue streams.

“No problem is insurmountable,” says Dave Bauer, founder of Lightforce One.  

“Lightforce One is about taking the light (the goodness) that’s within each of us and sharing it throughout the world.”
