We’re on a mission to empower the three billion people around the world living without access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy.
Households in emerging markets are buying lighting at more than a hundred times the amount people in developed countries pay.
Efficient energy for everyday
With over 3 billion people living without access to clean, reliable, or affordable energy, everyday tasks are made more difficult (and dangerous) than they should be. Access to clean energy can improve health, create education equality, economic empowerment, all the while combating climate change.
Working with over 700 NGOs and non-profits, we provide clean energy to those who need it most. Through our partners we distribute clean energy options that provide a more economical and environmentally friendly approach to everyday tasks.
Getting around at night in many places can often be dangerous without lighting. From accidental injury to people - especially women - being attacked, our lights help alleviate these dangers.
Studying at night is something that many children are unable to do due to having no access to electricity. Our lights ensure that children can study way past dark and help give them the tools they need to succeed.
In many places, as soon as the sun goes down, businesses have to close. Sometimes, these can be the most profitable hours (think outdoor market stall). Our lights can help ensure that businesses reach their full potential.
From providing economic opportunities for craftswomen, to freeing up time from regular household duties like collecting fuel, our lights can help ensure that women are more involved in both community and family decisions.
Not only do our lights reduce the health risks associated with household fuel-based energy sources, they allow health clinics to stay open later, insulin to be administered at night, midwifery tasks to be carried out, and prove crucial after natural disasters.
Our lights can help fuel small rural economies by freeing up more money for the community, which, in turn, allows them to turn their focus - and money - to other challenges they face.
Having control over your finances is something everyone deserves to have. Our lights can help people work longer, and can also produce new ways of earning extra income.
After almost any natural disaster, people are left without access to electricity, causing all whole range of problems. Our lights help to provide not only lighting to those in need, but also in search and rescue missions.
It takes a village
What started as a program to bring solar light to rural Kenya led to an unexpected reversal of an extremely harmful tradition for young women. So how did it happen?
