Starlight

DESCRIPTION

600 million people across Africa do not have access to electricity. Kerosene use is expensive and is harmful to people's health and the environment. Africa faces severe levels of poverty, inequality and unemployment. Climate change is causing more flooding, drought, famine and disease. Starlight engages STEM learning opportunities, particularly for girls and young women and provides clean energy for rural areas and refugee camps, starting with solar lanterns. Their products are the first step to change the lives of young children and achieve their dreams. They are made in Rwanda with love, love for children, love for the rural population and love for those who have nothing. Their goal is to end the use of kerosene lamps in rural villages by replacing them with solar lanterns. Since the launch, they have been able to electrify more than 500 households.
