In a world where more than 1 billion people are not connected to the grid - working, studying, productive activities or recreation after sunset is a challenge. It is our mission to help end this imbalance by enabling sustainable access to light for communities unserved or underserved by the electric grid.
To fulfill this mission, we partner with actors across the entire value chain that enables light access in homes, streets and institutions, empowering communities to be safer, active and economically productive after sunset. Our execution is done through local NGOs or social enterprises. We also collaborate with other aid agencies and corporates to enable suitable solutions.
Our approach is to deviates from a pure philanthropic model to an enabler of the eco-system - that empowers the community to meet local needs with local supply. Thus contributing to sustainable and affordable light access for all, underpinned by creation of gender inclusive livelihood opportunities.
