THE ONE LIGHT MISSION
Vision: One World
A world where people of all nations and traditions care for each other as one global family and enjoy the universal human rights of safety, food, shelter, health care, dignity, opportunity and joy. Together, we work toward the greater good for the planet and all living beings.
Mission: One Family
To build global peace through direct humanitarian aid to refugees in crisis, create opportunities to establish successful new lives, to heal trauma and establish platforms for peace and collaboration between groups in conflict.
Movement: One Light
One Light Global is evolving the way we approach humanitarian crises around the world. Rather than handing out charity to people in need and walking away, we connect our human brothers and sisters across the globe and walk together into a brighter future through collaboration and innovation.
When we look at the big picture, we see that all humans are one family. We are at a turning point in history that requires us to transcend separation. We are called to become something unprecedented: a united global citizenry, indivisible, built on a foundation of unity and a shared future.
LOVE, OPPORTUNITY, JOY
No matter what religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, economic status, body type, or skin color, within us all is the light of life. This light unifies us beyond circumstance, identity and borders. It has the power to unite us, tear down walls, dismantle racial and economic hierarchy, and to build a new world free from the structural diseases of oppression and hatred. It is also the power within each of us to be a force of love in the world.
We humans share one world and everything that happens on it is intricately intertwined. Every action, positive or negative, impacts the whole. The challenges we face are global. We must care for our planet and create innovative, sustainable solutions so that we can all survive and thrive. Through our work, we collaborate with people around the world as equals to pursue a sustainable future.
