About Light Organization
Before stepping up to present the Mission of our organization “LIGHT”, let me take the opportunity to acquaint you with the story of the organization; how it came to life. This is a project inspired by two young Haitian professionals whose intentions lie behind the obsession to participate in the social development of their country. Our ambitions began after a thorough investigation into the medical system of the country which revealed several anomalies that impair the functionality of the system. However, the sector as delicate as it looks, consists of useful drivers that we consider as assets to fix the recurring problems.
Given the seriousness of the country’s health system, we decided to build a structure that is designed to not only identify the issues that constantly plague the system but also to come with solutions. Consequently, we created an organization, namely (LIGHT) standing for “Living In Good Health Today” which purpose is providing a standard health insurance to all, particularly to vulnerable and marginalized students from age of 3 to 21, via its program called “Health for Student”. Besides the different insurance programs listed in the program section on the menu line, the organization also engages in other social protection programs where we provide technical and professional supports to communities where LIGHT is established.
The country's health system needs renovation in line with international standards. Living in situations where resilience is the only option is wearing. By bringing up these alternatives, we’re sure there will be positive impacts on the community and on the country as a whole.
Our main goals are to reduce the death rate of minors because of lack of access to free care, establishing a medical insurance system for the vulnerable people and secure the well-being of the next generation. Our ideal rests on the belief that all lives matter, so we’re more than determined to uphold this belief to ensure a brighter future for all.
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The organization “Living In Good Health Today” (LIGHT) emerged out of a pursuit not only to address those challenges but also to inspire and support the marginalized community with a desire for actions to speak louder than words.
"We’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Our dreams are bigger than our challenges and our actions louder than our words".
LIGHT is a local non-profit organization that builds its values on 4 core elements: Professionalism, integrity, diversity and Respect. But also forbids any form of intimidation, hostility, humiliation and bullying. Protecting both the people who work with us and those we serve from harassment, exploitation and abuse of authority. These are the values that define our ideal and the nature of our mission…
