1.6 billion people around the world lack proper access to electricity. Many of these people are forced to rely upon dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene lanterns as their primary source of light. In addition, many students worldwide do not have access to light for nighttime reading and study. Our communities greatly benefit from the safe, rechargeable light sources we provide. We want to help make light more accessible and sustainable in the communities where we work.
To ensure all students and teachers in our communities have access to light for nighttime reading and study.
Since 2014, TKF has partnered with LuminAid to provide more than 1,000 solar-powered, waterproof, inflatable portable lights for students and teachers in the communities where we work.
