LED Africa is a non-profit charitable organization started in 2009 whose initial Solar Lighting project provided solar powered lighting systems to rural secondary schools in Malawi. These lighting systems allow students at the schools to study in the evening. Donations allowed LED Africa to install and maintain this lighting system at 21 rural secondary schools. This project finished in 2018.

In 2013 LED Africa started its Science For All project which initially provided our partner secondary schools with math and science textbooks, as well as basic science demonstration equipment. In 2018, LED Africa as part of this project produced a science demonstration manual for teachers which was distributed to schools around the country. At this same time LED Africa started to run workshops for science teachers.

The president, Ray Penner, is a member of the science faculty at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Ray has lived and taught at both secondary schools and universities in Africa. His experience has shown him the great potential that Africa has and that the key to unlocking this potential is education.
