Launched by Esenciales J.S. SRL, The Dominican Light project aims to provide light to over 8 million people who are are forced to live with limited access to power. In addition to those who face daily blackouts and power shortages, others are forced to live entirely without power, making security and safety a heightened issue, especially in rural areas.
The Dominican Light project is an initiative that hopes to light up a country with a solution that is both efficient and eco-friendly. Esenciales J.S. SRL's solar lanterns are a low cost and sustainable product that can solve power concerns among those without access to a basic human right, light.
Promoted with the #LetsLightUpACountry hashtag, founder Shawn Hakim's Indiegogo campaign is currently live. The campaign breaks down how just $25 in funds can give up to 5 people access to light, a power notion that will surprise many who take this basic human right for granted.
