Bringing Light to People

From 2013 to 2018, Panasonic implemented the 100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project and donated a total of 102,716 lanterns to communities in 30 countries.

Following in the footsteps of the previous project, the Bringing Light to People project started in March 2018 with the aim of expanding the scope of donations by donating solar lanterns purchased with the proceeds made from selling contributed used books and other items.

Please join us in our efforts to deliver as many solar lanterns as possible to off-grid areas.

Reports from participants

Here are various reports and details of experiences of participants in the campaign for donating used books and disks, NGOs that delivered solar lanterns through crowd-funding, and Panasonic employees who visited recipient communities.

Wishing to Support the Project to Bring Light to People Living in Off-grid Areas

Bringing Light to People

I like books and tend to accumulate large amounts of them. I saw that this was a good chance to be of some help to society, so I donated 100 used books.
I hope that with this donation, children in Asia and Africa can enjoy reading at night, just as we do. I fully support the Bringing Light to People Project!
