Bringing light to the poor

"What is your good news?" is a good question that Fr Zuhlsdorf asks from time to time on his blog. Via New Advent, this video has some news of a simple invention which was an idea of students at MIT and put into practice in the Philippines.

The film shows this giving real help to people who are living in poverty and it is really good to see it used for that purpose first of all. But the idea is so simple that it could presumably be developed in many other ways. None of us wants to pay for energy if we don't have to.
