In light of the SocialBusiness.org top list of the Millennium Development Goals, this piece shows how certain organizations -- like that of SolarAid -- set their own goals. For instance, SolarAid wishes to replace all kerosene lamps in Africa by the year 2020.
SolarAid is along the same lines of SolarSister, an organization, however, that is explicitly gender-oriented. The idea is that kerosene lamps, which are dangerous, relatively expensive and toxic, could be replaced by solar lights, which last about five years and can pay themselves off after about three months. Though SolarAid is technically a charity, it uses a market-oriented approach by selling the lights.
