Six years of sales in six months

John Keane, the SunnyMoney Managing Director, talks about our successes and failures in his latest blog. Here at SolarAid we firmly believe that the best way to achieve our goals is to learn from our mistakes.

John notes that in the past six months we sold more solar lamps in Africa than we did in the previous six years. This is great news and just goes to illustrate the fantastic success our revised business models have been witnessing. As John puts it, we have simply started doing more of what was working and less of what was not.

John confirms that we have sold around 338,000 solar lights so far with the majority coming in the latter half of the last financial year. This year we have set ourselves the even more optimistic target of selling a further 660,000 solar lights.

That’s right, this year we plan to make it a million! If we reach our target, with your help, we would have sold over one million solar lamps, improving the lives of many many more.
