The foundation is focused on helping communities with limited access to electric light. As a global lighting leader, we want to correct this imbalance. Working with international and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and communities around the world, the foundation is bringing light to places where it’s needed the most. And by sharing our expertise on energy conservation, we are helping to protect our environment. We have four strategic pillars guiding our activities in support of our mission.


Lighting lives – We bring light to communities not connected to the grid or underserved by it.

Lighting entrepreneurs – We support entrepreneurs across the various aspects of the access-to-light value chain, from distribution of lighting to post-delivery/installation maintenance and support.

Humanitarian lighting - We offer material and logistical assistance to communities impacted by humanitarian crises, focusing primarily on providing lighting infrastructure and expertise.
