598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives.
Many use homemade kerosene lamps which are a poor source of light; they emit toxic black smoke, eat up to 15% of a family's income and are extremely hazardous.
Children can't study at night, the working day ends prematurely and indoor air pollution presents a serious health hazard.
By partnering with non-profits to help procure safe, clean and affordable lights that give off hours of light in the evening, families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark
This will enable the poorest in developing countries to develop, prosper and be self-reliant for their own power needs.
