When we started Keap, we realized that we had a chance to make a real difference.
Up to 1.3 billion people around the world do not have access to the electrical grid. Many use kerosene-burning lamps for light—a practice that’s inefficient, health-hazardous and dangerous. Through our previous jobs, we became aware of SolarAid's work to remedy the situation by giving people solar lamps that provide clean, sustainable light.
So, for every Keap candle you buy, we donate $1 to SolarAid to bring light to those without access to the electrical grid. We're incredibly proud they consider us a partner in their mission to eradicate kerosene lamps by 2020.
Partnership in action
YOU SHOP CANDLES
Buy any Keap candle, or any Keap candle subscription. Every candle you buy helps support SolarAid.
We tally the number of Keap candles we sell each month. For each candle we donate $1 to SolarAid.
SolarAid distribute solar lamps to local social entrepreneurs, who sell the lamps in their communities.
LIGHT IS SHARED!
Local families buy lamps from these trusted members of their communities, and stop depending on kerosene lamps.
