Project LifeLight to illuminate homes in Africa

project-lightThe Freeplay Foundation has undertaken a new project known as LifeLight, and this time it hopes to provide a few hours of lighting each night to approximately 500 million sub-Saharan Africans who do not yet have access to electricity - something we take for granted each time we flick a switch. This will be made possible by placing a wind-up base station into the home that will charge an array of detachable lights. Hopefully this will phase out expensive and unhealthy kerosene and battery-powered lamps that are currently in use. Prototypes are already being prepped to be tested in Kenya within the next few months.
