Lighting Pakistan

Lighting Pakistan is a program by IFC – a member of the World Bank Group, and the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector. The program aims at helping address the lighting needs of Pakistani consumers by helping them gain access to low-cost, high-quality, safe, reliable, and cleaner lighting products.

Lighting Pakistan is part of the larger Lighting Asia Program for the region and follows the same overall approach. The Lighting Asia program was launched after the Lighting Africa Program posted early success in the African market.
