Little Sun

Olafur Eliasson, Frederik Ottesen

The contemporary artist Olafur Eliasson, together with solar engineer Frederik Ottesen, founded Little Sun in 2012, and have distributed over 1.2 million personal solar devices to students, refugees, teachers and community health workers living without power. They deliver solar lamps to students in Sub-Saharan Africa, so they can study where there is no electricity at night. They distribute solar phone chargers to frontline health workers so they can treat patients in remote communities. They also bring solar energy to farmers and small businesses across the continent to create jobs, boost livelihoods and generate new opportunities.
