An estimated 1.6 billion people live without access to electricity.
Left in the dark, most turn to paraffin and other fossil fuels for light.
Living with a paraffin lamp is like smoking 40 cigarettes a day, and more than 1.8 million people a year die from complications arising from indoor air pollution. Paraffin fires are common, killing more than 1 million each year.
The problem affects us all: The smoke and CO2 coming from the world’s fuel lanterns is equivalent to the exhaust from 30 million cars.
With quality light, a family can continue being productive – cooking, studying, earning extra money for the family – into the night. Without it, a family is one step further from escaping poverty.
