SolarAid is an international charity, founded in 2006 to combat poverty and climate change.  598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives.

  • Solar Aid provide clean, safe and affordable solar lamps to families in Africa.
  • 10 million people now access to clean and safe light in Africa, this equates to 2 billion extra study hours for children.
  • Through this initiative has resulted in 2 millions tonnes of CO2 being averted and $440million has been saved by families.
