The sun is a resource that everyone shares in common. Ironically, many of the poorest parts of the world receive an abundance of the sun’s rays and are unable to capture its power. The Let's Share The Sun Foundation invites people to join together, share their diverse talents, and help capture the sun’s energy in ways that improve the lives of people in poor communities. Through our work, we aim to enhance the lives of all those who choose to participate in the Foundation’s endeavors. 

Our Mission

Let’s Share the Sun aspires to facilitate the use of solar energy in poor communities around the world where harnessing the power of the sun will enhance the quality of life. The Foundation installs solar in areas like Latin America and the Caribbean: places that are rich in their access to the sun but lack fundamental resources.

The Power of the Sun

The sun is the most abundant resource that all humanity shares. Some are in desperate need of its power to provide them with basic necessities. Roughly one eighth of the world’s population, or one billion people, lives in a world without electricity. Until recently, getting power to those living in the most rural areas was impossible. With the development of solar technology, electricity can be produced anywhere at a fraction of the cost required to develop traditional grid infrastructure. Solar power can do more than just provide electricity to rural communities - it can help alleviate poverty, manage medical conditions, and decrease child mortality.
