In Bangladesh alone, around 40 million people today still live without any kind of access to energy. - ourworldindata.org
Of these, over 10 million live in extreme poverty. - worldpoverty.io
Children in particular suffer with the inability to study with decent light at night.

Multi-hybrid Energy Generator Uses Piezoelectric, Photovoltaic, and Triboelectric Harvesting Micro-grid Array
A green means of generating electricity from the pitter patter of falling rain drops and sunshine is described here. A falling rain drop strikes at least one piezoelectric element (coated with multi-layer photovoltaic flexible thin films) of a micro-grid array comprised of many piezoelectric elements.
