All-Lights Village

Addressing energy poverty in underserved communities with sustainable solar technology to enhance quality of life and improve livelihood.

The Issues

Hazardous and Unsustainable Energy

The orang asli rely on kerosene lamps, wood fires, and dried palm kernel bonfires for light and warmth. These could affect their health in the long-term and pose a fire hazard.

Paying More for Energy

Some families rely on diesel-powered generators, car batteries, and heavy-duty 6V batteries for power. They are spending more than the average person despite their low power consumption.

Night-time in the village

Limited Activities at Night

Children are unable to study at night, causing them to fall behind and eventually drop out. Women have less time to be productive; they cannot see properly at night and risk hurting themselves when doing chores.

Participatory Community Monitoring

Evaluating and monitoring the project together with our beneficiaries to instil ownership and ensure long-term commitment towards positive change.

“Poverty is not just about a lack of money. It’s about the absence of the resources the poor need to realize their potential. Two critical ones are time and energy.

…if the world can put more of both into the hands of the poorest, we believe it will allow millions of dreams to take flight.”
