A kerosene lamp works in a similar way to a candle. This type of lamp is also known as an oil lamp; smoke from this type of lighting can cause respiratory problems especially if used in enclosed spaces. This week Juli and Marcus speak about their experience and work in Auroville: a project called Mission Tejas which plans to eradicate kerosene lamp usage by replacements with LED lamps. They talk about the new campaign in villages around Auroville.
