In 2008, Dr. Laura Stachel went to Nigeria to find out why so many women were dying there during childbirth. She was stunned to discover that in many areas, women were giving birth without electricity - sometimes in near total darkness. With her husband, she devised a way to bring solar light to clinics to Third World countries. Her program has had powerful effects around the world.
