In 2004, during d.light co-founder Sam Goldman's Peace Corps service in Benin, Africa, his neighbor's kid was badly burnt by an overturned kerosene lamp. This episode, in addition to the knowledge that 2.3 billion people on earth still do not have access to reliable power, motivated Sam to participate in a course named Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability in the Stanford Design School, where he also met co-founder Ned Tozun. That's where they developed their very first prototype solar lantern along with a rigorous plan to bring secure, bright, and sustainable light to people around the planet.
