“Five years ago, a prominent African working to bring electricity to the world criticized those who said solar lanterns provide electricity access. He said that
solar lanterns just “shine a light on poverty.” At that time, I tended to agree.
But after learning about and seeing the impact that solar lanterns have on people, and understanding how solar lanterns are displacing expensive, dirty, and dangerous kerosene, I changed my mind.”
