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 non-profits all over the world to distribute LuminAID Lights to individuals who will greatly benefit from a safe, rechargeable light source. LuminAID has distributed over 40,000 lights in more than 100 countries through the Give Light, Get Light project. Join us in our mission to make light more accessible and sustainable for all!
Current Charitable Focus:
Women's Global Education Project
The Women's Global Education Project (WGEP) is a Chicago-based NGO focused on advancing education and literacy in rural Africa. In Senegal, two-thirds of women aged 15 and up cannot read or write and only 27% of girls go to secondary school (UNESCO). Moreover, in the Fatik region of Senegal, 90% of schools lack libraries or reading rooms (ACR). WGEP is working to change this. Supporting WGEP through our Give Light, Get Light program will provide students in Senegal with LuminAID lights for studying and reading at night.
