The Ligaya ng Panginoon Foundation, Inc. (LNPFI) was established in 1996 by the Ligaya ng Panginoon Community, which was established in 1975. The Ligaya ng Panginoon is a Catholic Charismatic Covenant Community. The foundation gives it a full juridical personality and provides full support to the attainment of the community’s vision and mission.
Over the years, the Foundation’s programs evolved from mere spiritual to social renewal within the context of social responsibility and guided by its vision: ”A Community of Disciples on Mission.
Its purposes, among others, include: “(a) to conduct activities geared towards social and spiritual transformation and values formation, (b) to engage in outreach programs and projects geared towards the upliftment of the poor, the underprivileged and the distressed; (c) to pursue character building programs for the youth by establishing centers for leadership training and for formation of Christian values among different age-groups; (d) to contribute to other organizations and groups training materials and teaching methods to modify behavior and attitudes towards the achievement of a higher quality of spiritual life with their communities; and (e) to extend spiritual and moral support.”
At present, LNPFI serves over 2,500 members of the LNP community and over 1,000 families or approximately over 5,000 individuals outside the community.
