LIGHT IT UP

" Let's Shine Light from the Dark! "

LIGHT IT UP EAST ASIA & JAPAN 2019

At Schneider Electric, we consider access to energy as a basic human right. We want everyone on our planet to have access to reliable, safe, efficient, and sustainable energy. Today nearly 1.1 billion people — almost 1 of every 5 persons on the planet — lack access to modern energy.

Light it Up East Asia & Japan is an annual initiative that started 4 years ago. This initiative aims at bringing access to lighting to vulnerable communities across the East Asia & Japan region.

From June 2019 onward and for 3 months, Schneider Electric local entities and their partners will collect and distribute more than 2,500 units of Mobiya solar lamps to local communities in Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

We would like to invite YOU to participate in giving lights to the underprivileged households across these countries.

You may select more than one country for your donation, just ensure that you input the right amount of donation in each country’s page. Please note that 1 unit of Mobiya solar lamp cost around USD 35.

Now you can be proud that you help students to study, moms to weave and dads to mill rice at night times.

SUCCESS STORIES FROM LIGHT IT UP 2016

In December 2016, as part of the Light it Up Campaign, Schneider Electric Vietnam donated 162 Mobiya solar lamps to GREEN ID, a local NGO.

GREEN ID used this stock to put in place a social business employing local women and allowing 150 families to receive the lamps in exchange of a small monthly fee that they commit to pay for 6 months.With these fees, GREEN ID has been able to reorder 150 new lamps and distributed them to 150 new beneficiaries, ensuring the sustainability of the project.
