Light your home. Light the world.

The Starling Project provides development of solar power systems in countries such as Chad by supporting organizations like UNICEF through the sale of hand-poured candles made in Brooklyn, NY.

The World Energy Outlook 2014 shows nearly 1.3 billion people are without access to electricity, and more than 620 million people in sub-Saharan Africa (two-thirds of the population) live without electricity.

We believe all people have a right to a safe, healthy life. Sustainable, long-term solar power provides light, safety, health, education and so much more.

Why Starling

If you have ever witnessed a flock of starlings in flight, you likely stood in awe. Gathering, rising, spinning, pulsing and forever changing, starlings represent the transformative power and energy each of us has when we come together.
