Whoop Whoop!! We are celebrating our impact with a thrilling 10th crowdfunding campaign!


Save the Children shines light on Vanuatu

In March 2015 Cyc­lone Pam hit the South Pa­cific ar­chipelago of Vanuatu. WakaWaka’s Agents of Light and our NGO partner, Save the Children, distributed 1,200 WakaWaka lights to Vanuatuans who lost their homes in the natural disaster.

Silent Disaster

The most intense tropical cyclone in the Southern Hemisphere, Cyclone Pam is considered the worst natural disaster in the history of Vanuatu. The nation has 267,000 inhabitants scattered over 65 islands. According to Baldwin Lonsdale, President of Vanuatu, the catastrophe has rendered most of the inhabitants homeless. More than ever, there is a need for shelter, food and light.

Save the Children

WakaWaka’s campaign resulted in the donation of 500 WakaWaka Lights to Vanuatu. Our NGO partner, Save the Children, donated another 700. A total of 1200 solar lights were added to shelter kits that also included tents and food. The kits were distributed to families who had lost their homes on the islands of Tongoa and Epi.
