The electric light bulb was invented in the 19th century, yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps. This is unacceptable for so many reasons. This site is all how the pico-solar revolution is changing the situation.

The student lights campaign in one of our most exciting approaches to increasing access to solar lights. In Tanzania alone, we aim to sell over 300,000 lights in the next 18 months, the majority of these through this campaign.

That means hundreds of thousands of people no longer reliant on kerosene and candles… what a result!
