Commitment to Action

WakaWaka - Home & Personal Solar Light & Power Source

Commitment by

Business Creation Investments Ag, Wakawaka

In 2011, Business Creation committed to distributing one million WakaWaka solar LED lamps to individuals in developing countries living in off-the-grid homes. The WakaWaka lamp, meaning 'shine bright' in Swahili, is designed to fit on a bottle and uses state-of-the-art technology offering 16 hours of reading and ambient light on one single charge. With an affordable price, the WakaWaka lamp provides a competitive alternative to kerosene lamps, which have negative health and environmental impacts. In addition, an educational program related to climate change and energy efficiency will be implemented in conjunction with the distribution of these solar lamps.
