This Little Light Africa (TLLA) started out of a business and ministry partnership between those in the United States and Nigeria, more specifically Los Angeles and Abuja. One of those principal partners, Pastor Isaac Komolafe (see Issac’s Story), has been working in the northern region of Nigeria for over 30 years: planting churches, starting schools, providing clinics and bringing fresh water to this dry and hostile region.
As he shared his vision for Nigeria and outlined his plan to provide essential resources and services to stabilize the region and advance and empower the people in the most populace country in Africa, those listening were struck by the great need and the potential for their resources to provide much more than they had anticipated.
So in the beginning of 2020, with the COVID-19 epidemic causing a massive shutdown in the economy and with many in need of food, This Little Light Africa provided the resources to feed hundreds of Nigerians.
This was the birth of This Little Light Africa
