About Us

Light Up The World (LUTW) is a Canadian registered charity dedicated to the idea that access to energy changes lives.

We work in remote off-grid communities that lack the basic technologies that many of us take for granted.

By providing these communities with solar photovoltaic systems, we help them transition away from using fuel-based lighting and costly single-use batteries. The result is transformational.


789M people still live without access to Electricity

With a focus on training local technicians and developing the capacity of local service providers, LUTW fosters long-term partnerships so that communities are empowered to move towards a more sustainable future.

We are based in Calgary, Canada and have field offices in Lima, Cusco, Andahuaylas and Huaraz, Perú.
