The Little Sun Foundation, founded by the artist Olafur Eliasson, gives clean solar energy to people who lack energy access. We help improving the living situation of refugee families and children by providing them with solar energy. Thus children in Africa, who are living off the electrical grid, are able to read after the dark and improve their academic performance without being exposed to the harmful fumes of kerosene lamps. We aim to enhance the environmental consciousness of the next generation through solar projects and education programmes.
