COME LIGHT UP BRAZIL WITH US!

Around 800 million people worldwide currently do not have access to electricity. In Brazil this number is approximately 2 million people!*

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.

“Ever since I met Litro I fell in love. The way you work, the way Litro presents itself, acts... the commitment to things. It's not saying it's going to happen and it won't happen. It's all very fast. You make everyone feel equal. And if you talk to anyone here on the street they will say: it's not just the enlightenment you bring, it's the unity between people. That's the difference. I'm very happy to see this happen. After I invite everyone to participate, they can see what really happens. Everything I said, today they can see that it is that and much more. It’s so rewarding!”

"We have been without a generator, without electricity, for more than four months. It is very difficult. [...] The light will help with safety, because it is very dark and we have to avoid walking at night because of snakes and other animals. [ ...]

Now I'm in the final stages of pregnancy, and it will be great when my son is born to have the light from the lamp when he wakes up in the middle of the night.

It will be a huge milestone for our community, especially now that we don't have any lights. It's great to know that we benefit. For other people, light may be something very simple, but for us it means a lot, because we didn't have any. I'm very happy and thank you very much."
