Light up a Village is an on-going project which provides solar panels, LED lights and shortwave radios to people in remote and rural villages throughout the Asia Pacific region, with a particular focus on India.
The need is great. Over 700 million people in India alone do not have reliable access to electricity. They are forced to live in darkness. Can you image what it would be like to change the lives of every family in your street? You can do this for families by getting involved in ‘Light up a Village’.
Your involvement and commitment to this cause will not only bring natural light to millions of people, but spiritual light too. It will reach unreached people groups and those who have limited access to the gospel with the life changing message of the gospel.
How does it work?
We place a solar panel with multiple charging ports in each village, including LED lights and robust portable shortwave radios. The LED lights have a small battery like those in mobile phones. The villagers recharge their batteries during the day so they can use them at night. A 20 minute charge will provide light for up to 8 hours. By packaging a shortwave radio with a light we are able to give them two things – the message of hope, spiritual light, and the benefit of natural light.
Effectively, an entire village is ‘lit up’ and can hear the message of Christ. Please help us to light up more villages.
Your gift of $49 will provide a solar panel, LED light and shortwave radio for one family.
Your gift of $490 will provide a village with a solar panel, 10 LED lights and 10 shortwave radios.
With God’s help, and your valued support, we know that the light will shine brightly for a long time to come.
