Solar Lights Change Lives

Let There Be Light International has helped more than 625,000 people in off-grid Africa gain access to solar energy in their homes and health clinics. A lack of light impacts safety, health, development, education, and economic outcomes. Solar lights are enlightening lives. Join us today.

The Problem

Access to energy

600 million people in Africa live without access to electricity. When the sun goes down, businesses close, streets grow dark, and homes are lit with dirty, dangerous and expensive kerosene lamps which are responsible for high rates of childhood burns, respiratory infections, poisonings, and house fires. Let There Be Light International wants to change that.
