Without lights at home, students have no way to study after dark.

Health & Safety

The burning of dirty fuels leads to 1 in 14 deaths. Finding ways to remove  or eliminate harmful fumes will prevent many more unnecessary deaths.

Family

Without electricity, managing family demands means more time away for their loved ones. The importance of family bonding with forms of entertainment such as lights for reading and a radio are priceless!

Empowerment

Women spend nearly all their time managing family chores, including time spent charging cell phones in town, instead of finding opportunities to start a business or find paying work.

THE ENERGY POVERTY PROBLEM

 Globally, over 1.3 billion people do not have access to electricity.

Latin America accounts for 23.2 million of those people. 

In a desperate attempt to access light, families without electricity burn dirty fuels in their homes, a practice that endangers and harms the health of those families.

Electricity Changes Lives!
