Angaza Design: Clean, solar light for Africa

An idea presented on Indiegogo earlier this year:

We are on a mission to replace dirty kerosene with sustainable, clean and affordable light.

The Problem:

Imagine life without light! Families in the developing world spend over 30% of their precious income on dirty, unsafe kerosene fuel just to have light after the sun goes down. .... Children who study by kerosene light inhale the equivalent of smoking 2 packs of cigarettes each night. This is the reality of life for over 1.6 billion people across the globe.

The Solution:

Angaza Design was started in early 2009 with a focus on eradicating energy poverty in rural communities around the world. After months of living in rural villages in Tanzania and seeing the debilitating effects of dependence on kerosene light, we set off with a goal of creating high-quality, high-performance solar lights and battery chargers for off-grid families and small businesses, to fulfill their pressing need for clean and reliable energy.

Selected Perks:

  • $55 Give a light! Deliver 1 Angaza SoLite to a rural hospital, school, or community center in East Africa.
  • $120 Give a light, Get a light! Deliver 1 Angaza SoLite to a rural hospital, school, or community center in East Africa and get one to you too!
