Our Story

The LuDela story began in Uganda, where founder Jamie Bianchini was riding his tandem bicycle with a Ugandan friend named Innocent. Innocent shared his dream with Jamie to start a school for AIDS orphans and those in need. Innocent’s community lacked access to books and opportunities to receive a fundamental education. Jamie promised to do everything he could to help make Innocent's dream for his people a reality

Later, in Burkina Faso, Jamie spent the night at a rustic guesthouse where he was given a candle as a light source. He accidentally fell asleep with the candle burning and woke up to a room filled with thick smoke from a candle fire. Luckily, he was able to put the fire out with his boxer shorts. As he rode his bike onwards the next day the inspiration for the LuDela Perfect came to him. After helping Innocent realize his dream for the Good Hope School in Uganda, Jamie was inspired to use the patented LuDela innovation as a vehicle to illuminate the minds of more children around the world by giving the empowering gift of literacy.
