About

Access to energy changes lives.

There are almost one billion people in the world that do not have access to electricity. Light Up The World (LUTW) is working to change that by bringing solar electricity and access to energy to schools, medical clinics and community buildings in the most remote areas where people are still living off-the-grid. Many families and children in rural villages are living in poverty and when the sun sets, people have to find other ways to light their homes so they can cook, study and work. Light is just the beginning: it enhances opportunities for education and economic development, helps families save money and live in a safer and healthier home environment.

Working in some of the most remote and undeserved areas in the world, LUTW trains local technicians and builds the capacity of local service providers to transition to a sustainable future. LUTW has worked with over 220 partner organizations to bring solar power to communities in 54 countries, but there is still much work to be done.

Help us raise 200,000 miles by the end of September! LUTW will use miles donated to support projects that help communities increase their resilience and autonomy, helping to support traditional livelihoods and protect the environment that they are dependent upon.
