TWP International Director Sebastian Africano discusses the benefits of solar lighting with a member of the Lenca Women’s Ceramics Cooperative in rural La Paz, Honduras. This group of women is responsible for some of the most remarkable sculpture work in Honduras, and have replaced candlelight and smoky ‘Ocote’ pine flame with bright Barefoot Power LED lights, helping them work evening hours to get products to craft markets throughout Honduras.
