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.
Our featured Give Light Partner this holiday season is buildOn. We’ll send lights to their Adult Literacy Program, where women are working every day to learn the skills they need to start a business, create a better life for their children, and become advocates for change in their communities.
buildOn’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education. buildOn mobilizes rural communities around the world to build new schools, empowering entire villages to increase their own access to life-changing education and literacy. The buildOn Adult Literacy Program is taught in seven countries around the world. Parents and grandparents in Burkina Faso, Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua, Malawi, Mali, and Senegal are given the education they need to build a better life for themselves and for their children in the very same schools their children attend during the day.
Lights sponsored for disaster relief will be sent to partner organizations and distributed to families affected by disasters the world over. As disasters arise, these lights will be sent to the areas of greatest need with one or more of our humanitarian partners. Following natural disasters, safe light is one of the most critical needs for families left in the dark. Help us send lights for rescue, relief, and recovery.
Our current partners in disaster relief aid include Convoy of Hope, Team Rubicon, and Can-Do.org. Lights will be sent to those affected by Hurricanes Michael and Florence, Typhoon Yutu, and the California wildfires.
Allocate As Needed
Our humanitarian partners are working every day to help those in need. We use our ‘Allocate As Needed’ fund to send lights to the areas where they will have the greatest impact. Whether that’s a rural village without access to electricity, a community-based healthcare project, or refugees fleeing a crisis, your contribution makes a tangible impact for those who need it most.
