Light is a fundamental part of our lives. With a flick of a switch, it transforms darkness into places where people can work, learn and create.
Many of us take this for granted. But 1.1 billion people do not have access to electric light. For these communities, the productive day ends at sunset. Mobility after dark is limited and simple activities like accessing sanitation can be dangerous. Children cannot study. Shops cannot do business. Emergency relief workers cannot help people.
