Our concept of development cooperation follows the comprehensive approach (integrated approach). Inclusiveness underpins everything we do as we work within a trusted network of key stakeholders at the nexus of security, communication and development.
We focus on equal participation of all people in social, political and economic life. The integrative approach of Project Lighthouse Africa e.V. also includes a feminist approach to strengthen social communication structures for peacebuilding through the deliberate inclusion of women.
A well-established and trustworthy network of key actors in the fields of security – communication – perspective development is the basis and bracket of all activities.
The organization aims to support African countries with coordinated sustainable infrastructure development in the areas of energy, environment, agriculture, education and communications. As we believe that development, security and stability must be addressed in a comprehensive approach, the promotion of civil-military cooperation and the “EU Integrated Approach” is another objective of the organization.
That way it will build lighthouse projects for the whole of Africa.
Development of perspectives
At the heart of the activities is the conviction that African countries have a long-term opportunity to free themselves from dependence on development aid, corruption and poor governance and to build prosperous societies and sustainable socioeconomic conditions. For only with the development of perspectives – especially for women and the youth – can the cohesion of African societies be maintained and (re)built. A prerequisite for this is a trustworthy and well-established network of key stakeholders and actors on the ground, as well as coordinated action.
However, this requires advanced networking, help for self-help, information and communication, coordination, consulting and initial projects. The core of Project Lighthouse Africa e.V.’s work is the planning, development and implementation of country-specific sustainable development, with integrity underpinning everything we do as we work within a trusted network of key stakeholders at the nexus of security, communication and development.
