About Us

Our Mission

The mission of ‘One Million Lights’ is to improve the daily lives of children and adults by providing clean and healthy lighting. Our goal is to distribute one million (1,000,000) solar lights to replace dangerous and polluting kerosene lamps.
We provide clean, safe, affordable solar lighting to rural communities around the world through our international distribution programs, made possible by partnerships and donations. These solar lights enable children to study at night and adults to extend their workday, all while eliminating carbon emissions, improving household health, and greatly increasing income savings.”
As of yet, this particular youth branch has completed seven lights distributions nationwide, lighting up over 970 homes, and has raised over P1,130,000 (~22,400 USD) to provide these lights to off-grid communities.
