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.
