The Little Sun Foundation was founded by artist Olafur Eliasson to deliver solar energy to the most vulnerable communities worldwide.
As a charitable entity, we work with qualified partners to bring high-quality, durable, long-lasting solar products to displaced people and school children who would otherwise not have access to clean energy at all.
Our solar-education programmes aim to provide children with tools and knowledge that empower them to shape a sustainable future for themselves and for the planet.
Access to clean energy parallels access to almost every major opportunity in life: access to education, jobs, security, gender equality and better health. This is why "Clean and affordable energy access" is one of 17 Sustainble Development Goals set by the UN to achieve peace and prosperity for people and the planet. Because solar power means empowerment!
Little Sun Foundation will use the donation to bring more solar lamps to school children in Rwanda.
Many school children in the Kamonyi District live without access to electricity, making it difficult for them to study after dark. We address this issue and provide school children with solar lamps for safe and clean light.
