Our mission

Discover how the idea of Sunny Sonny Story was born.

In their travels across the Philippines, Luca and Sergio were saddened to see the widespread poverty despite the rich natural and human resources of the country. They have always harbored a deep desire to do their part in somehow giving hope to the hopeless. A turning point came when the strongest typhoon ever recorded hit the Philippines. They saw how, in the aftermath of a climate disaster, the availability of light meant the difference between life and death, hope and hopelessness. This eureka moment spawned the idea of an affordable, renewable source of light useful in such disaster situations.
This is how the Sunny Sonny Story came to life.
This humble project aims to nurture hope in the hearts all those communities around the World, who live without electricity by providing solar-powered inflatable lanterns that can help them in their day-to-day lives.

Our history

The journey

During their travels across the Philippines, Italian expat Sergio was deeply moved by the widespread poverty despite the country’s rich natural and human resources. After witnessing the devastating impact of the strongest typhoon ever recorded, he realized that access to light could mean the difference between life and death, hope and hopelessness. This revelation inspired him to create Sunny Sonny Story, an initiative dedicated to providing affordable, renewable solar lanterns to impoverished communities. Founded in 1989, his  project has since been recognized by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for its significant impact.
