Over 1.3 billion people live without electricity. Many of them must resort to the dangerous and costly use of kerosene to light their homes. The others remain in the dark. Anna Sidana founded One Million Lights, a non-profit organization with the mission to replace kerosene lamps with safe and cost effective solar lanterns in remote communities throughout the world. The use of solar lanterns has dramatically improved education, health and safety in these often neglected communities. One Million Lights has successfully distributed over 33,000 solar lanterns in twenty-seven countries, and their mission continues.
