When Texas oil man Mark Bent was flying his motorglider over eastern Africa, he noticed that huge expanses of the wilderness were deforested. When he found out why, his innovative brain went to work, and he came up with the BoGo Light, an inexpensive solar-powered LED light source that is changing the lives of thousands of Africans. AVweb's Russ Niles caught up with Bent near his home in Houston and discovered how one man's passion for flying helped light up the lives of people half a world away.
