No one should be left in darkness once the sun goes down. At Watts of Love, this is our philosophy, and we work hard with our partners to bring sustainable solar light to the places it is needed most. Light is the fastest way out of poverty because it allows people to be productive after sunset and to eliminate dependence on deadly and expensive kerosene. With access to light, abundant opportunities are illuminated.
Small grassroots organization that is hands on in the field delivering lights and empowering communities through education on savings.
One in five people worldwide lack access to basic electricity, often relying on toxic and costly kerosene or other fossil fuels to light the night. Emissions from these forms of deadly fuel destroy the upper respiratory system and are responsible for millions of pre-mature deaths each year.
The most vulnerable victims are women and their children who quickly develop chronic respiratory illness and are susceptible to devastating burn injuries while trying to study or work at night.
Watts of Love is committed to empowering those in need by building a better future through safe, renewable and life changing solar lighting devices.
