In many cases, high quality and clean lamps require rather little power and are low cost, but can provide significant improvements in life quality.
Lighting in most African, Asian and Latin American villages relies on kerosene lamps and candles. Each household spends $40 to $80 a year on such lighting, and they release pollutants that pose serious health risks, including respiratory or eye infections, kidney and liver problems, and cause deaths or home fire.
Solar lights provide a safer, cheaper alternative by bringing the energy of the sun into the interior to enhance the quality of indoor living at night. The solar lighting system gives you more time to read and write at night. These lighting systems can even power phones, radios and TVs, which means you can stay in the rural areas without worrying about power outages.
