SunnyMoney and Powered World Initiative USA working together to ensure more pupils have solar lights to help them study. See our Partners page for moreSee Our Solar Lights
It's time to turn on the lights with power from the sun. SunnyMoney is the largest seller and distributor of high quality solar lights in Africa, where over 600 million people don't have access to electricity. Replacing kerosene or paraffin with portable, affordable solar lights saves money, enables more study time, improves health, makes a home safer and saves the environment from harmful black carbon.
Kerosene burns up to 25% of the monthly income for off-grid families in Africa.
Causes fatal burns, eye and lung problems and releases black carbon into the environment.
The light is too dim to read or study without straining the eyes.
The high cost and dim light prevents night time reading, work and socialising.
“The light has changed our life. My kids eat well, study well and we are a happy family now.” --Dickson Murumbi Teacher, Kenya
“The children study for longer hours and I use the light for security. We can now stay for longer hours in the evening when socializing.” --Mabvuto Zulu, Father, Zambia
“Using SunnyMoney solar lights, the school has improved from a mean score of 227 to 247. Most students use their solar light to study til midnight.” --Stanley Ruget, Head Teacher, Kenya
“I don’t have any worries with the risk of the kerosene to spill and burn the house, because solar is easy to use and the children can put it on without me around.” --Victoria Materu, Mother, Tanzania
