Lights For Learning is a UK charity based in Cricklade, Wiltshire. We build solar powered lighting that we install in places of education. We work mainly in areas of the world where artificial lighting is impossible or hard to obtain. The benefits positively impact entire communities in which these schools or clinics are based.

We can provide our solutions, with training to fit them, to other charities who have their own projects that are also aimed to help lift the education & health standards of similar communities.

You can help us by donating or volunteering.
