Solar Solutions for Off-Grid Communities

About the Problem

There are over a billion people worldwide who use candles, kerosene, or wood to light up their lives. These fuels are expensive, dangerous, and make it almost impossible for children to study and to achieve their full potential.

Our Goal

Through strategic partnerships with other non-profits, we work to share solar lighting solutions and fund solar product distributions, installations, and education to individuals and communities living without reliable access to safe, clean, and sustainable electricity.
