Rural Rwandan households usually rely on dangerous and unhealthy kerosene lamps for illumination. Now one project has come up with an innovative, clean and affordable solution -- battery-powered LED lights with a pedal generator. All that's needed is about 20 minutes of pedaling on a bicycle-like contraption to charge the lights. The project doesn't just allow Rwandans to go night fishing or study for school but also offers an economic opportunity and a business model for rural areas.
