This toolkit is developed in collaboration with its Originator with the purpose to enable as many people as possible to take action for light access.
About the project
This toolkit, Liter of Light, has developed an adaptable lighting method to help underlit communities be safe and active after dark with low cost and simple technology.
Liter of Light methods have been used to light soccer fields, alleyways, and buildings in cities from Milan to Manila. The Liter of Light structures are made using a simple set of household materials and some easy to access equipment like small solar cells or batteries that can be easily adapted for your context.

More about the project
A neighborhood can easily improve the safety of residents by lighting up areas that are otherwise unsafe at night, and with Liter of Light this can be done in a cost effective and creative way. Putting light in homes also makes it possible for more young people to keep learning after dark and have improved life outcomes over time.
Access to light after dark is a global challenge but since 2013 Liter of Light has made it possible for anyone to create light structures for any context.
