What is Shine A Light?
Corruption is the biggest barrier to ending extreme poverty.
Shine A Light is joining with millions of Christians around the world who are bringing light into darkness by taking a stand against corruption – greed, secret deals, bribery and abuse of public influence – which impacts people in extreme poverty the most.
Corruption is not just an affliction of the Global South, but it is often our policies, our companies, and perhaps even our consumer practices that encourage corruption.
From Nigeria to Nepal, Brazil to Malaysia, Christians are a taking a stand against corruption and calling on leaders in churches, business, and government to take steps to increase transparency and accountability. Some of them will risk their lives and reputation to do this.
