With the increasing demand of more light and the emphasis made on research and development works towards developing locally and easily assembled LED lights, 1 Watt and 2 Watt LED Lights were produced. These lights currently are in the production phase at the local level by youth group. By the end of January 2011, the lights had been packaged in different system of 5 Watt and 10 Watt Solar System and are now in the promotion phase. Photographs of the systems are attached for the reference.

With the reference of the successful implementation of Solar Tuki Mass charging unit installed in the school of kaleshwor VDC of Lalitpur District and Kantipur Village of Chitwan District, request from the communities and schools from far western regions of Nepal had been received. But, due to lack of enough support, the speed for the installation of mass charging center at different places could not be increases as per the receipt of the requests. Coordination with other organization for the installation of community charging at the needy area is under progress at the local level.

We would like to express our appreciation towards all the donors and GlobalGiving team who had contributed in this project. We would also like to request all our donors and our well wishers to convey the information of our project in your circle for supporting the program. We seek your continuous support and encouragement for the promotion and anticipate cooperation’s in future as well.
