Re: Nice idea
Kerosene does give a good light, but as the article says, it is hazardous to use, the smoke alone is a killer even if it is used 'safely'. And it is very expensive. We might complain here about the price of petrol as oil prices go up, but for very poor people reliant on kerosene the rises have been crippling, which is on top of countries phasing out subsidies for kerosene as part of their economic reforms.
Good luck to them with this project. As someone said above, if it means a kid can learn or just enjoy a book after dark, it's worth the money.
