Solar Aid

Two of the biggest threats facing humanity today are climate change and global poverty. SolarAid helps to combat both, simply by bringing clean, renewable power to the poorest people in the world.


In rural Africa, many schools and homes do not have electric lighting. This means children cannot study after dark. We urgently need funds to bring solar-powered lanterns to homes. This will enable school children to complete assignments and continue their education beyond primary level. Electricity in schools will mean access to the web - and a world of learning.


Save lives with SolarAid
A poor family in Africa burns around 55 litres of kerosene a year to light their home and are forced to cook food inside. Respiratory diseases caused by toxic smoke kill 1.6 million women and children each year. That's one death every 20 seconds.

Solar lanterns can replace kerosene, dramatically improving health. A solar cooker can be easily built from cardboard and waste reflective material, eliminating the need for indoor fires.


Help people earn an income and fight poverty
SolarAid enables some of the poorest people in the world to make and sell solar-powered products. We need your help to provide raw materials, and train people in finance and marketing, so they can set up small businesses. This means they can earn a living, so they can afford to buy food and medicines and to send their children to school.

Stuff we need

SolarAid produces several products, which we need you to help us give to some of the world's poorest poorest. You'll see we need funds to produce solar lanterns, solar powered water pumps and much more. Each one can rapidly transform the lives of some of the poorest people in the world. We may also need equipment and supplies for our field offices from time to time.
