A generous donation of 100 solar lights from Unite to Light in Santa Barbara, CA. will lead to some new businesses for the nomads. We distributed them to each of our students for which they signed an agreement to pay. They will do a publicity campaign with these examples and take orders for more. The intention of the donation, was not only to provide light to those who have no electricity, but to create business opportunities for those who sell the lights. Thus we can restock the lights by purchasing more from Unite to Light.
I can attest to how well they work because I have been using one every night as I sit in my courtyard with no electric light and make jewelry. I can work for at least 4 hours with light bright enough to see the tiny beads.
