SolarAid is a UK based international charity founded in 2006 to combat poverty and climate change.

In 2008, SolarAid created the social enterprise SunnyMoney to run operations in Africa. SunnyMoney uses an innovative distribution model to sell solar lights in rural off-grid communities dependent on costly, toxic kerosene for lighting. By building a sustainable market for solar products, SolarAid and SunnyMoney provide access to safe, affordable solar lights in Malawi and Zambia to help catalyse solar markets with renewable light.

SolarAid’s mission is to light up every home, school and clinic in Africa by 2030, using safe, clean, solar power.
