• Comfort, access to communication media, quality of life: the Light for All Program has changed all of Brazil:

New light for Education

As a result of Light for All, schools have multiplied, the number of vacancies increased, night classes added. In warmer regions, fans and cold drinking water has made all the difference. The classes are more interactive and animated, with the contributions from electronic aids, such as television, DVD players and computers. Doing homework at night, with electric light instead of candle or lamp, has made learning easier, and the results are evident, as noted by farmer José Antonio da Silva, father of eight children and grandfather to seven, a resident of the quilombola community of Serra da Guia (Sergipe). "Their grades improved after the children began to study with the new light."

The 21st Century Health Care

The health posts enhanced care for residents of the indigenous village of Karitiana, in Rondônia.  Photo: MME DisclosurePostos de saúde foram construídos em localidades remotas. Outros, já existentes, ganharam refrigeradores para conservação de vacinas e outros medicamentos.

Com os autoclaves (equipamentos para esterilização de materiais), diversos procedimentos puderam ser oferecidos, como exames preventivos, retirada de pontos cirúrgicos e nebulizações em crianças e idosos.

Os partos, muitas vezes realizados sem esterilização adequada e na semiescuridão dos candeeiros, agora acontecem com maior conforto e segurança – e foi assim que, no Brasil rural de hoje, a expressão "dar à luz" ganhou um novo significado.
