SolarAid is an international development charity tackling poverty and climate change by building a sustainable market for solar lights in Africa. Solar lights provide families with safe clean light; improving health, saving money and allowing children to study after dark.

Our goal is to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa.

For every £4 donated we can distribute one more solar light in rural Africa. The impact of one solar light is:

  • 4 people reached with clean safe light
  • £145 saved by the family (from not having to spend on kerosene) 
  • 1,006 extra hours of child study
  • 1.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted
