Let There Be Light


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! 

The Issue

August 2016

9th Rural Health Clinic solar electrified

Let There Be Light International raises awareness about global energy poverty and raises funds for the purchase and distribution of safe, renewable solar lights to vulnerable off-grid communities in sub-Saharan Africa, reducing the need for polluting, dangerous, costly kerosene. 

Our Misson

  • 2,500 Solar Lights donated in Uganda and Malawi to at-risk communities
  • 10 rural off-grid Health Clinics have solar lighting systems in Uganda
  • Weekly Outreach and Education meetings about Renewable Energy
  • Solar Markets developed in remote and underserved areas

Jan-March 2016

Follow-up surveys of 900 solar recipients

“This solar light will change our lives, as my children will be able to use a safe light to study at night."

Mibulo C., LTBLI recipient

"LTBLI is a blessing to impoverished communities. With your help, we bring safe, clean, renewable lights to our children, the sick and the elderly."

D. Luwaga, Executive Director, KACCAD

Solar Lights Change Lives

Let There Be Light International (LTBLI) donates solar lights to handicapped and orphaned children, the elderly, widows, and nursing mothers in off-grid Africa.

September 2016

150 more solar lights will be distributed

“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!'”
