Got a question? We might be able to answer it:
When we began Lighter Learning we asked schools, churches and companies to raise £1000 to help schools in Africa install solar systems in their classrooms. We’ve since refined our model and learnt that we can get more lights to pupils faster and at a lower cost by concentrating on small hand-held solar lights that can be used both in school and at home. We’re constantly re-evaluating the way we work in consultation with solar customers and this is what we’ve learnt. However, if you have already, or are currently fundraising £1000 to light a classroom you can rest assured that your money will be spent as promised and that the communities will hugely benefit from the installation. The key point underlying both models is that solar powered light enables pupils to study for longer, safely. We thank you for your support in helping us to make this a reality for students in East Africa.
