What we love to do
Who are we?
We are a group of people who are highly passionate about making a positive difference to the world through the gift of LIGHT. To many, light is a convenience often taken for granted in this modern age but there are still global communities that are in the dark. We believe that these communities should not be forgotten and we have teamed up with an innovative organisation called ‘Liter of Light’ to fulfill our mission.
Through Liter of Light Nigeria, we teach marginalized communities how to use recycled plastic bottles and locally sourced materials to illuminate their homes, businesses, and streets.
The Liter of Light Project
The ‘Liter of light’ movement has made an impact on nearly every global continent and our main project aim is to take ‘Liter of light’ to LAGOS, NIGERIA. We have assembled a team based both in the U.K. and Nigeria to successfully run this project.
Our project uniquely emphasises acquiring the key component of the device from recyclable water bottles; as waste management is currently a huge issue in the city.
We also hold ‘Liter of light’ workshops where we will teach local residents how to produce and install the solar bottle lights. This provides an opportunity for them to earn a living. From this approach, not only will we see homes illuminated during our trip; but it will also open up this skill as a resource to provide light to many beyond our stay.
The impact of your donations will provide sustainable lighting to communities with little or no electricity; a reality that is often only dreamed of.
