What is Give Power?

The gift that keeps on giving

Did you know over 1.2 billion people in the world don’t have access to electricity? Instead, to light their homes they burn kerosene. Inhaling this toxic fuel is the equivalent to smoking two packets of cigarettes a day. It’s also highly flammable, often causing fires. Our mission at illumination is to provide these people with safe, clean, free, solar powered light to improve their health, wealth and education. And you can help. All you have to do to Give Power is buy one of our solar products and we’ll do the rest.

How does Give Power work?

It’s brilliantly simple. For every solar product you buy, we give a Mandarin 2 Solar Light to a family in a developing country who doesn’t have electricity. So you can enjoy the benefits of putting solar in your pocket and the satisfaction of making an enormous improvement to someone else’s life.

There’s plenty to feel good about because the light that you provide will:

  • Save the recipient family around $70 per year (that’s a lot when you earn $1 per day)
  • Increase their children’s study time by up to 70%
  • Dramatically reduce the likelihood of house fires and respiratory problems.

We know this because we have undertaken three separate studies looking into the benefits of replacing kerosene lamps with our solar lights.

Who can Give Power?

Anyone! Our customers can (and do) Give Power, but there’s also a Corporate Give Power Program, so everyone can get involved in reducing energy poverty.
