Solar brings light, improves education, safety, and health for those who live without energy access. It is the foundation of a brighter future.
Little Sun Foundation e.V. is a German not-for-profit organisation founded by artist Olafur Eliasson to bring light to the most vulnerable communities – especially urgent given the record-high number of displaced persons around the world. We raise funds to bring solar light and phone charging to refugee camps and to students. We offer programs on solar energy that broaden the reach of climate activation. Since 2020, we have embarked on a series of pilot projects to deliver solar powered tools for productivity to smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as solar tools to health workers and medical facilities.
In March 2021 we aim to launch our new website, telling you more about our current and planned projects, and we are excited to share our vision of a solar future in more detail there. Until then do reach out to us.
We wish everyone a healthy, safe, and solar end of 2020 and beginning of 2021.
Providing solar light to children in areas without reliable access to electricity gives them a vital tool for studying after dark, boosting their academic performance while improving their health. We believe that educating young people about the importance of solar builds a strong foundation for a more sustainable future. Read more!
