SolarAid project benefits 9 million in Africa, 1.5 million lights sold
From www.rtcc.org - February 10, 2015
Some 1.5 million solar lamps have been sold across East Africa in a charity initiative to replace smoky, expensive, polluting kerosene.
Many of the 600 million people who are still without electricity in Africa rely on home-made kerosene lamps for lighting − putting themselves in danger from fire, toxic black smoke, and eye damage.
