LEN provides reliable, clean and inexpensive solar lighting to the people of Liberia. LEN’s network of partnering Liberian organizations will generate income to support their work and improve their members’ lives. LEN was formed in August 2011 as a not-for-profit corporation in the state of New Mexico, USA and was founded by Richard Fahey, who was then a practicing attorney and former Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia.
LEN registered as a not-for-profit in Liberia in February 2012. As a US and Liberian not-for-profit, LEN will sell lights to local Liberian individuals and organizations on a break-even basis, with revenue being used by LEN to take the solar lighting program to scale and reach economic sustainability. This allows it to reach the poorest Liberians who are at the base of the world’s economic pyramid and bring solar energy to them that is is affordable and on a scale that meets their basic needs.
