We’re partnering with Because International to address two important needs that refugee children have: light and shoes. A LuminAID solar lantern provides a safe, rechargeable source of light for studying, safety, and comfort after dark.

About LuminAID's Give Light, Get Light Program
1.6 billion people around the world lack proper access to electricity. Many of these people are forced to rely upon dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene lanterns as their primary source of light. Through our Give Light, Get Light program, we partner with NGOs and nonprofits all over the world to distribute LuminAID lights to individuals who will greatly benefit from a safe, rechargeable light source. LuminAID has distributed over 50,000 lights in more than 100 countries from lights sponsored through the Give Light, Get Light Program. Join us in our mission to make light more accessible and sustainable for all!
If you are looking to purchase lights for humanitarian use, we offer a subsidized rate. Please visit our Nonprofit Subsidy page to apply today.
