To get you in the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we're shining the spotlight on three of our nonprofit partners that you may be unfamiliar with.
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.
Longtime LuminAID partner, ShelterBox, recently released a report detailing the scale of the unmet need for emergency shelter around the world.
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.
