Give the Gift of Light

100% of donations directly support vulnerable families and off-grid health clinics thanks to grants and donated staff hours.

Your Return on (Charitable) Investment is 10x for every dollar you donate, because families save an average of $150 over 3 years after receiving a $15 solar light! Now, that’s impact!

Lights for school and safety

Let There Be Light International donates solar lights to off-grid school children to improve their health, safety and educational outcomes. The solar lights improve indoor air quality and decrease rates of respiratory illness commonly associated with polluting kerosene lights and allow children to study after sundown. A donation of $500 will donate safe solar light to 30 students and 3 teachers.

Light for care and development

Maria is the mother of Irene, age 5, an adorable and adored child. With 10 people in their household, they used to spend $.75 a week on kerosene – 15% of their income. Now they use their solar light at night to care for Irene and the savings for medicine to treat Irene’s epilepsy. A donation of $150 donates safe lights to 10 families.
