Millennium Development Goals
Poverty Eradication: Little Sun provides light so businesses can remain open later, which increases their income. Using Little Sun also saves people 90% over a 2-year period compared to Kerosene.
Education: Little Sun provides light for children to study or read in the evenings, which leads to children performing better in school and staying in school.
Gender Equality: As they spend more hours in the home, women and children suffer disproportionally from the indoor air pollution, breathing related problems, burns, and fires caused by kerosene lanterns and candles. Little Sun light provides a safe alternative that emits no smoke and is non-toxic.
Health: With solar powered light, medical care that must be performed at night becomes safer to provide than under kerosene lamps. Little Sun lamps are safe, clean and eliminate indoor air pollution, breathing related problems, burns and fires caused by kerosene lanterns and candles, while supplying light that is 10 times brighter.
Environmental Sustainability: While polluting homes at the local level, using kerosene for lighting impacts the environment on a global scale, releasing 190 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. Little Sun is an environmentally sustainable solution.
