As the makers of the world’s longest lasting battery, Energizer® South Africa is committed to making light last longer for a bright and healthy future. The One Million Lights partnership forms part of Energizer’s That’s Positiv Energy campaign, a campaign focused on what people can do together to make the world a more positive place.
During July and August 2014, primary school learners in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal will be receiving 7,000 solar and kinetic lights in areas without electricity.
“This is the first time since the initiative’s inception in 2008 that we are sharing our healthy glow with the people of South Africa”, says Anna Sidana, Founder and CEO of One Million Lights. “We believe that all children should have access to a clean and eco-friendly solution to light, which enables them to study at night and add value to the time they spend with their families.”
The One Million Lights campaign has distributed over 50,000 safe, rechargeable solar lights around the world, replacing dangerous and polluting kerosene lamps.
The campaign aims to ultimately distribute one million solar lights and replace dangerous and polluting kerosene lamps in communities where people are dependent on non-renewable and toxic fuels for their lighting needs.
