Around 800 million people worldwide currently do not have access to electricity. In Brazil this number is approximately 2 million people!*

Our solutions

The lack of lighting or poor lighting inside the houses (using, for example, a kerosene lamp or candle) makes it difficult for children to study, work (sew until later, make flour with better quality, etc.), carry out activities basics with more comfort and safety (such as dinner, finding medicine, breastfeeding, reading, walking), in addition to generating a risk of fire and, in the case of Candeeiro (kerosene lamp), harmful to health and being a pollutant.


The Liter of Light uses simple materials to make solar lighting accessible to the low-income population, bringing light to life for those who do not yet have adequate access to electricity. We train residents for the installation, replication and maintenance of technology. The technologies are made of simple materials like PVC pipe and PET bottle and are based on solar energy.

Social impacts


Assentamento Tambaba

“Quando o LDL chegou aqui foi uma alegria muito grande pois vivíamos com ruas escuras, sem podermos nos locomover à noite. A pesca na parte da noite não era possível e com o LDL isso se tornou possível! O LDL trouxe poste e lampião para nós”


Comunidade quilombola no Município do Conde

“O LDL chegou em nossa comunidade trazendo alegria e confiança, de ir e vir do trabalho sem medo. Além de moradora, sou embaixadora, e posso dizer que hoje sou uma outra pessoa.”
