The Village of Light School for the Blind has a passion to educate those who have been blinded by disease, an accident, or genetics. The school is a haven for those who are shunned by society and family, showing them the unconditional love of God on a daily basis.
The ultimate goal of the school is to bring sight-impaired children to a saving knowledge of Christ and to disciple them in the faith.
The Village of Light was started in 1974 by ABWE missionaries Dal and Kay Washer. The Village of Light, located near the city of Kpalimé, employs Togolese believers to staff the positions of Principal, teachers and aides, and dorm parents to care for the students.
