Our work

The Enlighten Foundation core values of Faith, Education and Action enable Christian women to follow their paths to light and life. Through this approach, we are living out the Gospel in its truest form — enabling us to create positive change in ourselves, our families, our communities and the world. Jesus met both physical and spiritual needs and we are compelled by his love to do the same.

Through The Enlighten Journey process, The Enlighten Foundation helps Christian women find their purpose under God.


Finding purpose, identity and meaning


Strengthening families from a core spiritual level


Serving the community through leadership, faith and project assistance


Walking with marginalized women and children to provide spiritual and practical tools for daily living

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8

Creating Global Change

The Enlighten Foundation has a proven model that addresses
the basic needs of oppressed women in marginalized cultures.
Once these needs are met, women can help raise up the
entire community.

  • Education of their children
  • Health of their family
  • Skill development for themselves

By partnering with Baylor University to ensure program curricula is age appropriate and culturally relevant, we have been able to foster a love for learning in young children and women alike.

Enlighten Learning Centers

Through Enlighten Learning Center programs, we transform marginalized communities worldwide by providing women and children with tools and resources to better their lives and the lives of future generations.

Project Sparkle Early Learning Program for children:

  • Free primary education for young children

Skill and Personal Development Program for women:

  • Skill training to help improve socioeconomic status
  • Health education to foster healthy families
  • Personal development to create positive change within their local communities

A long-term approach.
We understand that foundational change doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why we hire local staff, and build relationships with the women and children who attend our programs. This helps ensure long-term success and program sustainability. We’re committed to each Enlighten Learning Center site for several years. Once program sustainability is achieved, we move on to additional underserved communities around the world.

Enlighten Learning Center:

South Dakota, USA

We are currently supplying young children with coats, clothes and sporting equipment as we study and plan for this Enlighten Learning Center. Launching in 2020, this Center will help transform the lives of vulnerable women and children through education and personal development.

Enlighten Learning Center:

Transylvania, Romania

Launched in 2001, this Center serves the Roma (Gypsy) population, one of most discriminated against ethnic groups in the world. Due to the extraordinary need, in 2013, a second Center was added in another village.

The Enlighten Influence: Today, positive change is taking place in two Roma villages, providing an opportunity for a brighter future.

  • Families have access to basic medical care.
  • Students receive school supplies and nutritious meals to help them thrive and grow.
  • Young children in two Roma schools are developing critical social and academic skills.
  • Project Sparkle Program graduates are attending and staying in Romanian schools — a first for many Roma girls.

Enlighten Learning Center:

Yerevan, Armenia

Serving Kurdish communities since 2005, the Center provides this marginalized, minority population that lacks basic resources with the opportunity for a better life.

The Enlighten Influence: Today, more than 275 Kurdish children have assimilated into Armenian elementary schools, and health education for women has helped elevate the overall health of the entire community.

  • Young students are prepared for further education by learning Armenian and other important academic and behavioral skills.
  • The health education program has equipped women and girls with necessary general and reproductive health training and services.

Enlighten Learning Center:

Harare, Zimbabwe

Formally opening in January 2019, this Enlighten Learning Center will serve thousands of marginalized women and children in this high density capital.

Built by The Enlighten Foundation and Revival Ministries to be the cornerstone of branching churches in Mozambique and Botswana, the church has room for three kindergartens and ample space for Skill and Personal Development classes and gatherings for women.
