When LTBLI began working with local, grassroots NGOs in 2014, 1.3 billion people lacked access to electricity. 7 years later, thanks to your generosity and the commitment of the global community, fewer than 800 million people remain in the dark. Amazing progress has been made, but too many people still suffer when the sun goes down. To #LeaveNoOneBehind in the energy transition, LTBLI prioritizes mother/baby pairs, students, elders, and people living with disabilities in off-grid communities.
Our data demonstrate that solar lights truly are changing lives with 97% of program participants redirecting fuel savings to other basic needs (food, school fees and medicine) and 98% of parents reporting improved household health and safety.
