About SolarAid

SolarAid’s mission is to light up every home, school, and clinic in Africa by 2030, using safe, clean, solar power. 

There are 578 million people in sub-Saharan Africa living without electricity – and this number is increasing. When the sun goes down at night, families are reliant on dangerous and expensive forms of lighting such as candles and kerosene lamps. SolarAid has played an important role helping to create vibrant and sustainable solar markets across Africa through a trade-not-aid model in rural areas. Through our social enterprise, SunnyMoney, we have distributed over 2 million solar lights, directly impacting over 11 million people across Malawi, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Families across the continent can now rely on safe, renewable solar lights as the sun sets, but there is still a long way to go to reach everyone who is being left in the dark, and we are stepping up our efforts. To reach those being left behind, SolarAid has just signed off a new 5-year strategy to significantly accelerate access to clean energy in Africa and share our learning. In late October 2021 SolarAid launched its new fundraising campaign to ‘End the Darkness’.
