Lit! Solar

Lit! Solar, a revolving micro-finance fund enables families to replace their dangerous kerosene lamps with safe, emission-free solar lanterns. Lit! Solar has worked directly with youth in the developing world to produce a solution that works best for them, providing the benefits of solar lanterns to more than 10,000 people, and reducing by thousands of tons the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
