In Jan 2009, the founders of Walk in the Light found themselves in the village of Rialo for the first time. When they arrived they discovered the most amazing people who welcomed them and made them a part of their family! They also discovered what extreme poverty looked like. People walked five miles each way to a river to get dirty water. They had no roads, no electricity, no education, no healthcare and no hope of economic growth.
After meeting with the village elders they said to the founders, “If you wash our back, we will wash our front.” This has paved the way for everything we do together. WITLI never does anything they can do themselves but helps in doing the things that are not possible. Today the community is a completely different place with a vibrant hope for a great future! In 8-10 years time, WITLI’s work in Rialo will be complete. See how you can be a part of this transformation below.
