Change of leadership at Light for the World


Julia Moser takes over Light for the World Austria – Rupert Roniger hands over responsibility after 27 years

Vienna (OTS) – Julia Moser will become managing director of Light for the World Austria. She thus represents the organization externally and leads the political work in Austria.

With a degree in law, she brings in-depth expertise as well as years of full-time and voluntary experience in the inclusion of people with disabilities.

“The rights of people with disabilities are Light for the World and very important to me. I am excited to advance this joint mission as Executive Director in Austria. Light for the World is active in poor regions of the world. This is central, because inclusion helps out of poverty and must therefore be thought of globally,” says Julia Moser about her appointment as Managing Director of Light for the World Austria.

Marion Lieser becomes international managing director

Marion Lieser will take over the international management of Light for the World on August 8, 2022.

A graduate in social pedagogy and social work, Lieser has dedicated her career to date to development cooperation: through her several years of grassroots work on the ground as well as her work in international management, Lieser has first-hand knowledge of the cooperation between the sister continents of Africa and Europe.

“My vision is a just world. That is a world without discrimination, without poverty and with a free life for every human being. I am delighted to contribute to the global justice agenda as the international executive director of Light for the World with a committed and competent team,” says Lieser.

Rupert Roniger hands over responsibility after 27 years

After 27 years, Rupert Roniger is handing over responsibility for Licht für die Welt. “Together with numerous volunteer supporters* and around 250,000 donors*, we have succeeded in saving the eyesight of more than one million people and supporting more than 600,000 children with disabilities on their way to independence. We have strengthened health and education systems and made the voices of people with disabilities heard in their struggle for basic human rights and to build an inclusive society,” Roniger sums up. He has shaped Light for the World from a small association into an international civil society organization with over 250 staff* in quite a few African and European countries.
