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

Ten years ago Al Gore woke up the world with his movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. Maurits Groen, founder of WakaWaka, saw the urgency of his plan, and brought it to the Netherlands. On the 4th of October Al Gore was in the Netherlands again. WakaWaka joined hands with Inspiration360 and wanted to stimulate social and sustainable entrepreneurship. The event aimed to invigorate the debate in the Netherlands and increase the readiness to take action. Prior to the evening program WakaWaka invited the Dutch business community to formulate new ambitions and inspire others with impressive milestones.  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.
