Could you spend a Night Without Light?
Living in darkness after the sun sets is the reality for 578 million people in sub-Saharan Africa lacking access to electricity.
To escape the darkness, families have no choice but to rely on poor alternatives to lighting such as toxic kerosene lamps or dangerous candles. These are damaging for both people and the planet.
On 18th November 2021, we are challenging everyone to go for one night without using electricity. That means no light, no internet, no phone and no TV!
How to take part
Create your own Fundraising Page and get sponsored! It is easy to do and can be personalised with a story, photos and details of your fundraising. This can then be shared with everyone you know, and every penny comes directly to us – including Gift Aid.
You can also make a suggested donation of £25 to take part.
Raise awareness of the challenges of cooking, socialising and working in darkness, by sharing your experience on social media.
If you wish, you can use one of our solar powered lights to see how even a little light can make a huge difference. Visit our shop to get your own solar light!
