The PLA and its subsidiary organizations plan and implement country-specific projects that will be able to meet their own financial needs after an opening phase of cofinancing. To ensure sustainability, charitable and commercial elements are combined.

The organizational structure is locally focused and provides the necessary flexibility for rapidly changing project requirements. In close cooperation with external partners, the Project Lighthouse Africa organizations gather the necessary know-how for successful implementation of the identified projects.
