Little Sun Powers

What started as a humble idea to create a small, portable solar lamp for people without electricity in Ethiopia is now a global project that has changed over a million lives through the awesome power of the sun. Little Sun strengthens communities from the inside by creating local jobs and generating local profits through local partners and networks of young, African entrepreneurs. For every high-quality solar product sold in an area with electricity, their partners or entrepreneurs sell a similar product in their part of the world without electricity at a fair, locally affordable price.
