How we Work
We are committed to ensuring GravityLight is sustainable and scalable. We aim to create local jobs, skills and livelihoods in the heart of the communities that will be using GravityLight.
Rather than undermining the local economy by giving away free products, we are working through sales agents and community networks. Flooding the market with free products can harm the local economy by undermining local businesses and livelihoods in areas where earning potential is already fragile.
The GravityLight Foundation wants to boost the local economy by creating sustainable demand for clean, safe lighting solutions.
Through both our own field sales team and working with local partners in Kenya, GravityLight supports Kenyans to earn a living and learn new skills through selling GravityLights.
GravityLight Kenya Ltd is the trading subsidiary of The GravityLight Foundation.
This team leads the sales and marketing of GravityLights across Kenya, along with research into the use and impact of GravityLights - feeding this into future product development priorities.
If you are based in Kenya, please visit our GravityLight Kenya website to stay up to date with our latest news from our in-country team.
