    I love this! It's interesting to imagine how this product could potentially be used to provide light to areas that rely on wood/coal/candles/kerosine as their main sources.

      I agree! The list of benefits is so long (more access to light=more access to education, work, and more safety for women and children; clean energy=better health, fewer expenses, less environmental pollution, more safety; charging mobile phones=access to apps for microenterprise, health, farming, etc.). Pretty amazing how much difference tech innovations like this can potentially make.

        Yes, exactly! Have you ever heard of an organization called Light Up Africa? I've been following them and would love to find a way to introduce them to Siva Cycle. I think there's potential for a powerful partnership for the greater good! Thanks for sharing!
