Litro de Luz Brazil: a history written by volunteer hands

Our solutions

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.

“Desde que eu conheci o Litro me apaixonei. A forma como vocês trabalham, a forma do Litro se apresentar, agir… o comprometimento com as coisas. Não é dizer que vai fazer e não acontecer. É tudo muito rápido. Vocês fazem com que todo mundo se sinta igual. E se você falar com qualquer pessoa aqui na rua ela vai dizer: não é só a iluminação que vocês trazem, é a união entre as pessoas. Esse é o diferencial. Estou muito feliz de ver isso acontecer. Depois de eu chamar todo mundo para participar, eles poderem ver que acontece de verdade. Tudo aquilo que eu falei, hoje eles podem ver que é isso e muito mais. É gratificante demais!”
