MPOWERD are a B-corporation working with over 700 national governing bodies to help make a positive impact towards the planet and people in need. Donating solar lights help people who don’t have access to light. This then helps keep people safe, happy, and educated which helps keep the economy growing and the opportunity for people to thrive.

Let There Be Light In Uganda

In many rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa, access to electricity is still a dream. Although the grid reaches some urban and peri-urban communities, most people in rural Uganda have no access to safe lighting. Imagine trying to study or do chores in the dark or using only a candle or a kerosene light. Imagine trying to take care of your family or run a business. Imagine spending up to 30% of your total household income on a small, dangerous, and polluting kerosene lantern that puts you and your children at risk.

MPOWERD in partnership with Solar Health Uganda and a generous donation from Wilkinson Supply Co., LTBLI brightened hundreds of lives, making homes safer and helping to increase the financial stability of vulnerable households through reduced spending on unsustainable, non-renewable lighting.
