The Dream Light Project focuses on the distribution of solar lights to communities in Rwanda and beyond as a means of strength and opportunity. For many countries in Africa, there is little to no access to electricity. Often, the highest expense for a family is that of fuel to burn kerosene lamps, which are hazardous to one’s health. By eradicating these costs and improving the quality of life, solar lighting allows endless benefits, including giving students the ability to study at night, hospitals to stay open later, and women to work on their craft earning income.
