Light Up The World (LUTW) is a Canadian non-profit organization focused on the principle that access to energy changes lives. LUTW implements projects in communities that don’t have access to electricity. Projects help communities transition away from using fuel based lighting and spending a significant amount of their income on batteries and charging cell phones. The result is transformational. With a focus on training local technicians and developing the capacity of local services providers, LUTW builds partnerships so that communities are empowered to move towards a more sustainable future.
LUTW has two offices – the head office based in Calgary, Canada and our field office serving projects in South America is based on Lima, Peru.
