HELP POWER UGANDA TODAY

Lumi is a Business as Mission venture in Uganda that provides low-income families with affordable solar power.

PROBLEM 
“1.3 billion people lack access to electricity and rely on kerosene lamps and other polluting alternatives for lighting” (The World Bank). There are 35 million such people in Uganda alone. Solar can solve this but very few can afford the high upfront cost.

SOLUTION
Lumi eliminates the high upfront cost by using a Rent-To-Own payment system that makes the purchase affordable for low-income families in this underserved market.

WHY ELECTRICITY

Replacing kerosene with solar electricity can prevent a house from burning, keep children from getting asthma and improve performance in school.

On top of all that, it saves these needy families a lot of money – up to 80% of their lighting and charging expenses.

LUMI IMPACT

LUMI NEEDS

Lumi hopes to supply power to 30,000 people this year but customers are being added so fast we must increase our equipment inventory to meet the demand!

Lumi needs your help to get more equipment to continue to provide more power to more people.

LUMI & WORLDVENTURE

While providing over 30,000 people with solar power, Lumi staff also have the opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus (see the above baptism in the Nile river being performed by a member of our team, Mawa Joseph).

To serve these additional customers, Lumi needs to raise $200,000 this year.
Lumi needs to raise 50% of this, or $100,000, before May.

WorldVenture & Lumi
WorldVenture is a non-profit and a Christian mission.  Lumi is a for-profit business operated by WorldVenture missionaries and closely partners with WorldVenture and Ugandan churches.

Donations
WorldVenture has launched a loan fund to support Lumi’s growth. Here’s how it works: Tax-deductible donations are received by WorldVenture. WorldVenture then loans these funds to Lumi. As those funds are repaid that money becomes available for additional Business as Mission ventures similar to Lumi. Your gift keeps on giving!
