A Light to Uplift Those in Poverty

Evans Wadongo is supplying (Borgen Project) Kenyans in rural areas with solar-powered LED lanterns for free. These lanterns help families perform everyday tasks and save money that they would otherwise spend on kerosene. Wadongo has been chosen as a Top 10 CNN Hero and he hopes that this honor will bring more support and publicity to his work, and consequently help lift 100,000 households out of poverty by 2015.
