1.6 billion people in the world live without any possibility of being connected to their national electricity grid.

The African continent is severely impacted by this, nearly 600 million people live without electricity and rely on fossil fuel lighting such as kerosene and candles which are expensive, cause pollution and are dangerous.

People who are exposed on a regular basis to kerosene fumes are at a health risk. In addition to this, many deadly accidents have happened as a direct result of flammable kerosene.

The use of proper lighting is a basic need for everyone and O’SUN® understands this and is working to develop a range of portable light systems which can be used as an alternative to the fuel-based lighting.


At O’SUN® we want to go a step further in our approach to providing quality light to developing countries and do more than manufacture lamps.

We have established a program which aims to enable O’SUN® to assist selected villages in various areas of the world that are without any means of connection to the electricity grid, and provide them with solar lamps.

We will use this opportunity to teach people about the efficiency of using solar energy.

The program is directly financed by proceeds from the sales of our products in industrial countries.
