International charity Solaraid wants kerosene lamps like these out of circulation within seven years....not by banning them, but by spreading a solar lamp revolution. Ubiquitous throughout Africa, kerosene lamps are extremely dangerous, producing noxious fumes and sparking deadly fires. Managing director Pippa Palmer says Solaraid's solar lamps are not only safe, but provide enough power for four hours of continuous lighting.
