    Annual Report 2023


    Around the globe, 745 million people still live without access to energy, which often means living without access to light after sundown.  Since our formation in 2017, we have been working toward our initial target of serving 10 million lives with lighting by 2025.  Over the years, we have gathered experience and learnings that help us finetune our focus and operations to effectively serve communities in need. We are pleased to present our 2023 annual report, which  will bring you along in the trials and triumphs we face as we work towards our vision, giving you insight into where we are and where we plan to go.
