Scotland Lights Up Malawi

The Scotland Lights up Malawi campaign is raising funds in order to address climate justice by investing in solar lights in Malawi.

Climate justice is global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the world. The concept is that those who have benefited from emitting carbon and burning fossil fuels, assist those whose lives are affected by the changing climate.

The funds raised will help change lives  across Malawi through our partner SolarAid - supporting in the eradication of the kerosene lamp by providing education and access to a safe clean light alternative for the first time - solar lighting. By supporting such work you will help support the charities efforts in combating climate change, poverty and giving light to some of the 15million Malawian’s still without electricity.

See how powerful an impact you can have on lives with just a £20 donation - 

No of lights: 6  -  Number of people benefiting: 38  -  Money saved: £778  -  Extra hours of study: 7,475  -  Averted tonnes of Co2: 3.2  -  People experiencing health improvements: 22 

If you would like to stay in touch with the project visit  or get in touch with Ruth Milliken on ruth@dunelmenergy.co.uk.

Renewable World

1.4 billion people in the world have no access to energy. Unconnected to the grid and disconnected from the world, these families struggle to break from the cycle of poverty.

Kerosene is burnt to light their homes and businesses. Dung cakes or firewood are used to bring heat to households and to cook meals each day. And women and girls must spend up to four hours each day collecting water, often in the most physically demanding environments. 

Renewable World exists to change this reality by providing clean and sustainable renewable energy to communities in developing countries. This breaks the cycle of poverty and improves livelihoods, health, and education for some of the world’s poorest people.

We work with local partners in East Africa, South Asia, and Central America to tackle the root causes of poverty by providing access to community-owned renewable energy systems like solar, wind, hydro, and biogas. Our model of community engagement, sustainability, and female empowerment fulfil key criteria as set out by the United Nations, and to date, our work has transformed the lives over 26,000 people.
Renewable energy does not harm the environment, it replaces the expensive and polluting kerosene in homes and businesses, it provides safer cooking fuels, and it provides the power needed to pump water.

We are proud of the support that Scottish Renewables and the Scottish renewable energy industry gives us. For more information on how to get involved, follow us on Facebook, Twitter or sign up to our newsletter here. Thank you.
