Share your sun

Every pair sold brings the gift of clean and safe light to a family in central Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

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. With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.

For each lamp this equates to:

  • 4 people reached
  • £145 saved in not having to buy fuel
  • 1006 hours of extra study time for students and children
  • 1.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted
  • 2 people experiencing better health
