Little Sun launched Power to Read – a fundraising campaign to bring solar lamps to students in rural Africa.

Three hundred and forty million children in Sub-Saharan Africa live without electricity. This means they can’t study after dark, are less likely to graduate, and get jobs that can help pull their families out of poverty. And that’s especially true for girls.

To help change that, #PowerToRead will bring 5,000 solar lamps to children in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Senegal, and Rwanda to help them study after dark, stay in school, and break down barriers to opportunity.

Support Little Sun here on WeShape – and if you want to contribute to this campaign specifically, head to their website

With 2100 credits you can finance one solar lamp.

These allow children to study even after dark. And they do so without being exposed to toxic fumes from burning coal or wood.

Thanks for your support!
