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

When a community is provided access to a sustainable energy source it builds their capacity to fight poverty. Sustainable energy unlocks the opportunity for remote communities to use advanced tools at schools, improve productivity in the home and increase safety at night.
