The new Light up Kenya Project

Light up Kenya

Brightgreen’s Light Up Kenya project is a new solar-powered charity initiative that helps families light their homes in off-grid areas of Kenya.  Some 35 million Kenyans don’t have access to permanent electricity.

How does it work?

For every $2000 purchase of Brightgreen LED lights made from  our web shop you will be given an 8-digit code, which allows you to activate a solar LED kit in a home in Kenya. This code allows each kit to be tracked individually, ensuring that it is deployed effectively and allows you to access information about the home that you have lit up.

Each kit includes:
• 2 low-energy LED bulbs: 4 hours of light each when fully charged
• 3W solar panel: light-weight, ceiling-mountable or portable
• universal phone charging dock
• replaceable battery power storage unit.

Brightgreen has partnered with the Nairobi based lighting provider Sunlite Solar to ensure the responsible distribution and management of each Light Up Kenya donation.
