Powering Opportunity with Solar Energy

Providing energy and technologies to off-grid communities for over 25 years

Light Up the World is a Canadian charity and International development organization dedicated to improving communities by providing access to energy and life-changing technologies.

When we provide a community sustainable access to energy, ultimately we are helping them fight poverty as a result of transitioning away from costly fuels and batteries.
 In addition, sustainable energy unlocks the opportunity to use tools to improve productivity and everyday life.
