Light Gives Heat is a non-profit organization with a vision to rebuild and renew Africa from the inside out, as well as see people in the West live with hope. Dave and Morgan Hansow quit their jobs, rented out their home, and boarded a plane bound with hope themselves, as they flew across the world to Uganda to adopt their child. In the midst of finding her, Light Gives Heat was created. Five years later, they are empowering Africans, and giving women the means to work with a steady income, to be able to provide for their families. These talented women create products made from up-cycled paper beads. Mokoda Hellen created the necklace I am wearing here. She is 35 and has 4 children.
