Extend the Day envisions a world where no child is denied an education or opportunities because they do not have access to light!

This is our mission, but also a true story about a boy in our project in western Kenya, named Bruno. One of our sponsors while visiting the project met Bruno and this was his story, from the bottom of the class to the second from the top.

We work with locally run and operated non-profits in the areas of need. This allows us to be culturally sensitive and have the ability to monitor the lights.

This simple solar light will help children in disadvantaged countries to improve their future through education!

Stories from the field

Interview clip conducted by Cheryl Elmquist during her ‘Experience Kenya’ trip with the team from Extend the Day. This was with Kevin, a student in the Tembea Project, Ujunga, Kenya. It is so inspiring to hear of these children’s hopes and dreams, and to be able to supply a simple tool to help children like Kevin to reach his goals!

Executive Director, Jo Lonseth explaining our mission

We are so excited to announce our new corporate sponsor APsystems.

APsystems will donate $1 for every microinverter purchased to the nonprofit to cover all administrative expenses for its Lights for Learning program in 2017.

“APsystems is proud to partner with Extend the Day to bring light to these children’s lives.” said Dr. Zhi-min Ling, APsystems Global President & CEO. “We firmly believe in what Extend the Day is doing around the world and are committed to helping them continue to achieve measurable results with their Lights for Learning program."
