Isn’t it time everyone shared the same basic human rights?
We see access to sustainable energy as a basic human right. Not a luxury. Not a nice-to-have. Not something for the future; something for now. A straight-up pre-condition for development. Because access to electrical light and power means access to education, to communication, to income-generating opportunities, to self-belief, to a better future.
The sun is the world’s greatest natural energy resource. It’s abundant, it’s sustainable, and it’s available everywhere. It’s the solution for everyone who needs power but doesn’t have access to electricity. So let’s use it.
Thanks to consumer purchases and partner donations WakaWaka helps everyone tap into the sun. From outdoor adventurers and festival-goers to earthquake survivors and remote rural schools, they can all enjoy solar products and solar power with the same WakaWaka quality.
You can’t underestimate the impact light and connectivity have on people’s lives.
With help from inspired and caring consumers, our active global community, and our many, many partners, we have provided over 1.2 million people in off-grid areas with access to electicity.
This cool-looking map (well, we think it’s cool) highlights the locations and projects where WakaWakas are meeting people’s basic right to light and power.
