Story

Could you spend a Night Without Light?

On 13th October 2022, we are challenging everyone to go for one night without using electricity. That means no light, no internet, no phone and no TV!

Living in darkness after the sun sets is the reality for 590 million people in sub-Saharan Africa lacking access to electricity. Families hurry to cook dinner, while children rush to get their chores and school work done before the darkness arrives. They have little choice but to use dangerous and toxic forms of light such as kerosene or candles to study, or not study at all.

With your help, we can continue to provide solar powered light for millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa.
