Every Solar Lamp Has A Story

… and you helped us create 6,500 in 2021!


Behind every single solar light that gets distributed in the Eastern Province of Zambia by our teams, there is a person whose life is about to change.


We hear these stories all the time. Students who can now study for exams that go on to attend university, parents who can now work after the sun has set and provide more security for their children. Families who can now sit around in the evening and get to know each other, women who feel safer walking after the sun goes down.


But behind every person that does not have light, there is also a story. A story of someone who has to inhale toxic fumes from kerosene, spend money on dangerous candles, or simply have their day cut short when the sunsets.


Last year in a village in rural Zambia, the community suffered an unimaginable tragedy. At the local school, a single candle was being used to study. This single candle caused a fire that took the lives of the twelve girls inside.


This one-story could have been a different one. Instead of a candle, the light used to study that night could have been from a clean, safe alternative – solar light.


That is why your incredible support towards our project is so important. Together, we are creating different stories. Those about lives that are positively impacted by solar light.


Thank you to everyone that donated towards our project last year. We raised a phenomenal $16,300. Every single solar light that we distribute has a story, and you helped to create 6,500 new ones.
