THE STORY:

The Lit! Solar Lantern Project ( http://www.litsolar.org), founded by Columbia University student Ben Hirschfeld, provides solar lanterns to students without electricity in the developing world.  Our solar lanters replace the dim kerosene lamps whose smoke causes pneumonia, lung cancer, and global warming. We have helped over 10,000 people and hope to triple tht number in the coming year.

Please donate here and help us give students light to learn by!
