A Global Problem 
1.2 billion people - more than a quarter of the world's population -   

The darkness brings:
ILLITERACY: Children unable to study cannot advance their education.
ILLNESS: Kerosene smoke and soot cause more deaths than malaria.
POVERTY: Expensive fuels for light consume more than a third of family income. 

Our Solution
Using technology originating at the University of California at Santa Barbara, our solar lights can generate hours of brilliant light. A clean, affordable source of light brightens the chances for:

EDUCATION: Children and families can now read after sunset.
HEALTH: Asthma and respiratory infections are reduced and fire hazards averted.
PROSPERITY: Savings on fossil fuels free family funds for improved living conditions. 
Unite To Light's unique Luke Light and Lumen Charger (a solar-powered light with USB charger) are low-cost, easy-to-use, durable solar LED lights. Powered by small solar panels, the lights recharge in the sunlight during the day and provide students and families with a clean, bright light at night. After just a few months, the lights pay for themselves by eliminating the cost of burning kerosene.
