Something as ubiquitous as light can easily get taken for granted. But in towns like Trujillo, Peru, inhabitants don’t have access to indoor or nighttime light. The CapLight project aims to bring affordable lights made of soda bottles to families in Trujillo to improve living standards, increase access to education and allow evenings to be used more productively. Find out how the lights work here.

Feeling inspired? Support one of these nonprofits or nominate one for the Give for Youth challenge.  The 20 nonprofits who receive the most votes will be able to microfund for their projects on Give for Youth, plus be eligible for Microsoft matching grants up to $100,000 across all organizations.

Interested in getting funding for your own U.S.-based youth micro-project? Review the official rules and submit your nonprofit to our Give for Youth challenge on GOOD Maker from Monday, January 7 to Friday, February 1 (noon Pacific Time) for a chance to have your project featured on Give for Youth.
