Fifty Lanterns is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit dedicated to helping those most in need in the developing world with solar energy.

Fifty Lanterns is committed to continuing to help those most in need in the developing world through clean, safe, renewable solar light and solar energy. Founded in 2006, we have distributed solar light and energy around the world in places of war, conflict, and natural disasters. Our solar lights have changed lives for thousands of families living in poverty. By eliminating the need for toxic and expensive kerosene, and dangerous open flame from oil lamps and candles, we can help women redirect funds towards income generating projects, medical care, and school fees for their children.

Solar lighting is safe, clean and non-toxic. With your help and generosity we can provide life changing solar light and energy to a mid-wife, widow, child-headed household, school children learning to read and write, and elderly people living in the developing world.

One of our current projects include "The Grandmothers Project". We are committed to providing safe renewable solar lights to a group of 550 Ugandan grandmothers dedicated to raising and nurturing AIDS orphans. Our Ugandan partner is The Nyaka AIDS Orphan Project. We have also recently lit with solar panels and batteries a new school (funded by "The Image Project" ( for Masaai girls at the Kidaywa Village in central Tanzania.

Next up, with your generous support, we hope to deliver solar lighting, power, and hot water to a medical/dental clinic in Uganda associated witih the Nyaka AIDS Orphan Project.(

Please help us spread solar power and light to these amazing groups of people through your generous donations.

Peace and Light,

Linda Cullen

Executive Director/Founder
