Organisatie-informatie

The WakaWaka Foundation is an internationally operating NGO based in the Netherlands. We provide people at the bottom of the pyramid with safe, sustainable and self-sufficient energy and light solutions and train children in those communities to become Climate Heroes.

There are 1,5 billion people living off-grid (they have no access to the conventional energy grid), who are dependent on toxic, dangerous, and dirty kerosene lamps for lighting. Burns of kerosene lamps result in 300.000 deaths per year and millions of mutilations. The effects on the lungs of an indoor kerosene lamp equals smoking two packs of cigarettes per day, and the use of kerosene costs an average of 20% of a daily family income. No access to light is detrimental to safety, school results, economic activity, and community life.
