For every Bright Books journal donated, a durable, portable, solar light is donated to someone in need. Solar lights quickly provide clean, bright light in places where normal electricity is not currently accessible. Nearly 1.2 billion people lack access to electricity, most of which are in Sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia. In the absence of electricity or solar, many people use kerosene lamps, candles or batteries. These options are not sustainable, dangerous, and very expensive. Replacing kerosene with renewable lighting is a win-win-win for the environment, health and the economy.
