Ethan goes electricity free for 5 days

Jade Zelkowicz

Ethan went without light and gadgets for 5 days! He raised a phenomenal £1,700 for SolarAid, saving families over £67,600, which would otherwise have been spent on extremely hazardous ways of lighting their homes.

In Ethan’s words, “I’ve seen how a small amount of money can create such huge and sustainable change to children’s health, education, reducing poverty, as well as helping the environment. I know how lucky my family is to have access to safe light by flicking a switch, and how access to light is one of the keys to escaping poverty. I want the same thing for all families.”

He even made a video to explain why he chose to support our work.

Thank you Ethan, you are inspirational.
