HOW IT WORKS

1. VILLAGE IDENTIFICATION

Our field team identifies rural villages with no access to electricity.

2. DATA COLLECTION

We gather demographic data, including how people are using expensive, dirty, and dangerous energy sources like candles and kerosene lamps.

3. FUNDRAISING

Individual donors and groups from around the world come together to provide solar power to every family in a village.

4. VILLLAGE PARTNERSHIP

Our team presents the benefits of the project to the community. If the village chooses to partner with us, they contribute at least 25% of the cost of the systems to promote ownership and self-determination.

5. LIGHT UP CELEBRATION

We deliver the systems to the village, help with installation, and hold a small celebration to turn on the lights!

6. REPORT

You receive a report detailing the impact your donation has made after the project has been implemented.
