Angel's Story

Meet Angel. Angel is 10 years old living in extreme energy poverty with her family in a small village in Tanzania.

On a previous trip to distribute lights, we spent some time with the beautiful children from one of their local schools. It was so moving to see the genuine excitement on the children’s faces to receive their individual light.

This one solar light gives Angel the choice to do her homework after dark, which she didn’t have before because her Mum would use the only light they had to cook dinner in the evening. We know that one solar light allows students to study 78% longer using safe and reliable lighting, which in turn improves their educational outcomes.
