With seed funding from the World Bank, we spent 14-months designing the Nuru Lighting system.  With the customer in mind, we spent our time in rural Rwanda, field-testing the light, taking extensive feedback from actual users.  Based on our findings, we created a light that is not only affordable and durable, but is also tailor-made to meet the needs of the Base of the Pyramid consumer.

Provides enough light for basic tasks and room lighting – Each POD is many times brighter than the light produced by a typical kerosene lantern and can be used as an individual light source for task lighting or can be combined with other POD lights in a variety of ways to provide even more light. Affordable – The low price of each POD light is more in line with the income stream of rural populations.
