We're working with nonprofit partners to distribute much-needed solar lanterns and phone chargers in the Bahamas, following the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian.
Happy National Inventors' Day! To celebrate, we're sharing LuminAID’s recent segment on The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation with Mo Rocca. Our founders, Anna and Andrea, were featured on the show and discussed the innovation behind LuminAID's solar inflatable lanterns.
Longtime LuminAID partner, ShelterBox, recently released a report detailing the scale of the unmet need for emergency shelter around the world.
This holiday season, LuminAID is partnering with buildOn to bring light to women around the world working to improve their circumstances through literacy. When you purchase a Special Edition Give Light, Get Light Package, you'll sponsor a light for buildOn's Adult Literacy Program.
In many low-income regions and in communities recovering from disasters, electricity is limited or completely inaccessible. Lighting sources like kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles create dangerous environments for the families who use them.
An estimated 263 million children are out of primary and secondary school worldwide. Insufficient, unreliable, and dangerous lighting can be a limiting factor for many areas already struggling to provide accessible education to children.
The cost of a home without electric lights is high. Energy-poor families are estimated to spend 40 billion USD annually on fuel for inefficient candles and kerosene lanterns.
For us at LuminAID, 2017 was a year of creativity and innovation, and an even stronger commitment to our mission for safe light for all.Together, we are shining safe light for schools and families across the world, from the Himalayas to Syria and Peru. Let's look back on all we've accomplished together in 2017.
