Portable Light Project

“Energy efficient solid state (LED) technology exists today that can help people who need access to electrical power and light. Even in small amounts, digital light can provide educational opportunities, improve community literacy and health, and increase daily household economic production. The people who will benefit the most from the introduction of these technologies are women and children who live in the world’s poorest countries. To implement this technology, we do not need to wait for the LED market to “mature”. We need to be inventive. We need to differently about how solid state lighting can be designed and delivered in ways that are useful and acceptable to the practices of different cultures.”
