Liter of Light produces cheap, sustainable, and easy-to-make lights that illuminate the lives of the communities that have little or no access to electricity. Illac Diaz, the founder of the company, first noticed the impacts of climate change in 2006, when a school in the neighborhood collapsed due to a strong storm. This inspired him to think of solutions for the problems that arise in his climate change stricken country.
Illac designed a simple light that could be built at home, with local materials, and with little previous knowledge. By following his idea, he created a people-based system guided by a bottom-up approach. Liter of Light creates opportunities for a better livelihood.
