Give Back. Bring Light.

‘Tis the season for giving and gratitude! This #givingtuesday, make a donation to Share the Sun and change lives forever.

 

The WakaWaka Foundation

The season of giving is upon us and we would like to kick-off the holidays by shining our light on the WakaWaka Foundation; an internationally operated non-profit organization based in the Netherlands. With a simple source of solar powered light, they’re illuminating the darkest corners of the world where electricity is not accessible, making a lasting impact on local communities and providing relief in humanitarian aid situations.

In rural areas where electricity is unavailable, it’s normal for people to rely on traditional yet hazardous light sources, such as kerosene or candles. The WakaWaka Foundation offers training and awareness events to educate communities on the importance of sustainable solar energy and how it can be incorporated into education, business and everyday life.

 

Solar Entrepreneurs

The latest #SharetheSun project gives our Agents of Light com­munity the unique opportunity to con­trib­ute to the development of safe and sus­tain­able sol­ar energy in Rwanda, where 76% of the pop­u­la­tion lives without elec­tri­city.

With this ground-breaking project, your generosity will support the train­ing of un­em­ployed Rwandan youth to become ‘sol­ar en­tre­pren­eurs.’ The sol­ar en­tre­pren­eurs will raise aware­ness with­in their com­munit­ies about the dangers of tra­di­tion­al light­ing and the be­ne­fits of sol­ar en­ergy. This will help im­prove the liv­ing con­di­tions of the Rwandan people by giv­ing them ac­cess to safe and sus­tain­able en­ergy. Simultaneously, un­em­ployed youth learn about the busi­ness and are equipped with the necessary tools to embark on a ca­reer in sol­ar en­ergy.
