The Issue

Let There Be Light International combats extreme poverty and global climate change by raising awareness about energy poverty and by donating safe solar lights to vulnerable off-grid communities in sub-Saharan Africa. LTBLI advocates for the incorporation of a pro-poor energy access perspective into ongoing, aligned programming.

Solar Lights Change Lives

“The most impactful moments for me were seeing how grateful the recipients were and hearing what this light meant to them. One gentleman said to me, 'Without these lights, we had nothing. And now, you have given us everything!'”

Let There Be Light


International



Every day, energy powers our lives!
We work, we play, we study. And when we need light, we flip a switch. We don't close our business when the sun goes down or worry about our family's safety every evening, every night.  But millions of people have no access to safe lighting. Together we can change that!
