Meet our featured Give Light partner for March, The Kikulu Foundation.
When kids go to school, have proper resources, and are given the opportunity to dream, they excel. That’s why the Kikulu Foundation is on a mission to ensure all kids have access to quality education. They serve students and teachers in rural Uganda, providing student scholarships, books and supplies, teacher training support, and classroom materials.
We’re on a mission to send 100 lights to the Kikulu Foundation so each of their students can study after dark, and so they can help even more kids realize their dreams.

"Our students live in a rural area with very limited, to no electricity. LuminAID lanterns allow them to have access to light after dark and the ability to study and read together when they would otherwise have no light source. Teachers also use these lights when they are out after dark for fieldwork and teaching assignments."
–Alisha Robertson-Stephens, Founding Director of The Kikulu Foundation
