Philips Lighting Foundation

Funding partner since August 2017

In a world where 1.06 billion people have no reliable access to power, electric light is a distant dream for many. One in seven people across the globe struggle to work, study, or help others after sunset. The Philips Lighting Foundation is committed to ending this imbalance.

The Philips Lighting Foundation is a non-profit organization with a vision to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. By applying technology, expertise and resources, it provides access to light, raises awareness of the importance of energy efficiency in protecting our environment and supports humanitarian interventions.

The Philips Lighting Foundation funds a program with Women on Wings, Philips Lighting India and Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, for distribution of Solar Lighting Systems in about 800 off-grid or under electrified rural households in Pilibhit in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

“Women on Wings brings us a unique and very valuable opportunity to work with and learn from the best business minds and support us as we address the challenge of increasing the number of jobs and livelihood opportunities for women in rural India.”
