Our Mission


Towards a more Dignified Life


To Inspire Hope & Virtue


To Build a Brighter Future


We believe that God has given each person an inestimable value.

In response to the challenge set by Jesus, we seek to help people by showing them His mercy and compassion. We are convinced that brighter world of peace a justice is possible when people strive to grow in knowledge and virtue. When people know & embrace what is truly good, they can begin to lead lives directed towards the good for which they have been created.

Accompanying people, not systems

While we recognize that we cannot eliminate poverty as a system, we can journey with people towards a more dignified life.

We’re a humanitarian organization aimed at tackling the causes of poverty and injustice in the world, using an approach of building people which promotes the growth and development of the whole person. Through projects which encourage people to become active participants in decision making, it empowers individuals to decide their own future and the future of their communities.

Faith & Action

In 2016 as the Catholic Church celebrated a Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Holy Father Pope Francis called on the generation of young people to “To blaze trails that open up new horizons capable of spreading joy, the joy that is born of God’s love and wells up in your hearts with every act of mercy.“ Inspired to bring God’s love and mercy to those in parts of the world who are deprived basic dignities, several members of the Jesus Youth movement in the United States decided to respond by creating Lumen Vitae. Lumen Vitae, which translates as ‘Light of Life’ in English, is a non profit humanitarian organization founded by the Jesus Youth Movement which works to help people living in poverty see this world in its fullness. Jesus Youth is a global lay organization recognized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Laity, with a focus on the Catholic faith formation of young people in over 25 countries around the world.
