Illumination is a social enterprise born from one man’s dream to make the biggest impact possible on energy poverty.
Energy poverty is the lack of access to energy services, like electricity. Today 1.2 billion people suffer from energy poverty, affecting their well-being and safety after dark including a lack of light to study and be educated. To function after dark they burn kerosene to light their homes which causes problems for their health, finances, education, safety and the environment.
The mission at Illumination has evolved from a single man’s vision into a dedicated and passionate team, developing a range of quality environmentally friendly solar products along with their international Give Power program.
We were thrilled to be a part of the Illumination eCommerce website design and build project, that would not only provide quality solar products for consumers to purchase, but provide a basis and home for the main purpose of the Illumination project: To provide solar lighting products to those in need via their BOGO (Buy One Give One) Program with a focus on international AID and Disaster Relief.
Illumination have distributed over 500,000 Mandarin solar lights with life-changing benefits for more than 2 million people in over 20 countries.
