The WakaWaka Foundation

The WakaWaka Foundation is an internationally operating non-profit based in the Netherlands. The WakaWaka Foundation raises funds to provide solar products to families in humanitarian crises. We work year round to make sure WakaWakas reach families caught in crisis. In the last few years we have campaigned for refugees in Syria, Ebola health workers in West Africa, typhoon survivors in the Phillipines and Earthquake relief in Nepal.

Al Gore - 10 years after: the urgency and opportunities

On the 4th of October Al Gore will be back in the Netherlands, 10 years after his book was first presented in the Netherlands. Many steps towards a carbon-free future have already been taken, but in the wake of Paris 2015 it is time to take stock; what are the needs and opportunities to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral society? The event on the 4th of October aims to invigorate the debate in the Netherlands and increase the readiness to take action.

The WakaWaka Foundation will be the social partner of Inspiration360 in the inspiration event of the year. Read more here…

The WakaWaka Found­a­tion is com­mit­ted to make long term and last­ing im­pact to loc­al com­munit­ies. By de­vel­op­ing in­nov­at­ive dis­tri­bu­tion mod­els and pay­ment sys­tems, WakaWaka aims to make the same high-qual­ity tech­no­logy that is avail­able in West­ern coun­tries af­ford­able and ac­cess­ible in de­vel­op­ing mar­kets. 


Emergency Relief

The WakaWaka Found­a­tion is re­spons­ible for mon­it­or­ing the re­spons­ible and ef­fi­cient dona­tion of WakaWaka Lights and Powers in hu­man­it­ari­an aid situ­ations to gen­er­ate the most im­pact. We work to­geth­er with re­lief agen­cies to dis­trib­ute the WakaWa­kas to fam­il­ies in need in crisis areas like Haiti, Syr­ia, West-Africa, the Phil­ip­pines and Nepal.

How can you help?

Com­pan­ies and in­di­vidu­als can also donate WakaWaka's dir­ectly to the WakaWaka Found­a­tion. When a situ­ation like a weath­er dis­aster or con­flict situ­ation leads to a ma­jor hu­man­it­ari­an crisis, we will col­lect all dona­tions and send WakaWaka's to the ground as soon as pos­sible.
