Listening to music whenever we want is something we take for granted. Like having sufficient light to work.
But for almost 800 million people the reality is different. Light is in short supply, expensive and potentially dangerous, like kerosene lamps.

Working with partners, thousands of lamps have already been distributed to countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Zimbabwe and Cambodia.
An online calculator makes it possible to measure the impact on families and the environment.
Energy poverty is an underreported problem: light and electricity are crucial in creating equal opportunities for all.
