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 and improve access to safe and sustainable solar in rural communities. We work year round to make sure WakaWakas reach families caught in crisis or without access to electricity. 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.
