Help Eradicate the Kerosene lamp from Africa
Life-changing solar light
Our goal is to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa by 2020. To do this we want to get ‘pico’ solar lights to the 598 million people living off-grid in rural Africa.
How we reach the 598 million
Through our social enterprise, SunnyMoney, lights are sold, rather than given away for free.
A charity that sells lights!
Yep! At first this looks odd – but we believe this is both essential for the creation of a sustainable market for solar lights and the only way to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa for good.
All income generated by the sale of lights is invested back into our work: helping to make this an incredibly cost-effective way of combating both poverty and climate change.
Our impact is huge! We are getting lights to people fast but have a long way to go to reach the 600 million people living without access to electricity. Donate now and help us eradicate the kerosene lamp for good.
It costs £5 to get a life changing solar light in to a rural African village.
Thanks to the UK government, your £5 becomes £10, providing two families with the opportunity to buy their way out of poverty. Please donate to help spread the sunshine.
