Foundation Fridays: Lighting Up Africa

Submitted by

We are delighted—or perhaps re-lighted!—to be invested in One Degree Solar, producers of “BrightBox,” the best solar light and small appliance recharger we have yet seen.

Most solar light brands last only until the first part on them breaks. Replacement parts, including bulbs, are especially hard to find in low wealth communities, where these lights are obviously most needed. “BrightBox” is hardy to begin with, and its parts, including a standard motorbike battery, are easily found and replaced.

Here’s a great TV spot about this company that gave an immediate boost to sales, focused currently in east Africa.

“Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.” Desiderius Erasmus
