Our concept of development cooperation follows the comprehensive approach (integrated approach) and is based on the nexus development and security – communication – perspective development.

The PLA and its affiliates plan and implement country-specific projects that, after an initial period of co-financing, are able to meet their own financial needs. To ensure sustainability, charitable and commercial elements are combined.

The organisational structure is locally focused, with the flexibility to respond to rapidly changing project needs. In close cooperation with external partners, Project Lighthouse Africa gathers the necessary know-how for the successful implementation of the identified projects.

Comprehensive approach of the activities of Project Lighthouse Africa e.V.

It targets the areas of waste management and renewable energy, communication and media, training, off-grid water supply and basic sanitation, and digitalisation in the agricultural sector.

Based on our comprehensive approach, Project Lighthouse Africa is looking for promising collaborations and partnerships on both a non-profit and commercial level, always depending on the different character of the various projects.

The PLA organisation also benefits from the diverse expertise of its board members, who are responsible for evaluating, implementing, coordinating and monitoring projects.
