The majority of the world must have light because it is one of the basic needs of being human, for security, for education, for livelihoods. More than 1.6 billion people today lack access to safe and sustainable light and use paraffin to light their world at night. The lack of light for the majority of the world’s population has had a catastrophic impact on our local and global environment. So we are all interconnected by light and also by the absence of it.

By purchasing a Solight, you are helping to distribute light to third world and underdeveloped regions, such as Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, where people are most vulnerable. When a customer buys a Solight, they allow us to subsidise a Solight for someone in a poorly lit area. So for every 100 lamps sold, we provide two Solights. Currently looking for non-governmental organisations to distribute them, we deliver these donations through local globetrotters!

Over the past 7 years, we have already distributed more than 1500 Solights in areas that really need them. Thank you for your support!
