ECCA is planning to provide solar lamps in ward 13, Rapti Municipality, Chitwan district (south central Nepal), where there is no public electricity supply. Geographically, this region lies in mid hills and houses are widely spread from each other. The villagers are presently using kerosene lamp, because of which daily life is difficult. ECCA plans to provide solar lamp to the villagers in a phase-wise manner, in coordination with the local women groups and schools. Orientation on renewable energy / solar energy will also be provided to the local people. Solar lamps have been procured and are presently being charged and tested.
ECCA is thankful for your support which has enabled us to help rural communities get access to environment friendly technologies and improve their living standard
Chepangs live in the hilly region of Rapti Municipality, Chitwan district (mid-south part of Nepal). This Chepang community is the underprivileged indigenous group.

Solar tuki lamp set (which consists of 2 lamp units with built-in batteries and 1 solar photo voltaic panel of 2.5 Watt) was distributed to villagers in Punma village of Jajarkot district in Mid-western region of Nepal. There is no electricity in this village, because of which life is difficult. Kerosene lamp was used for daily household chores, because of which indoor pollution also occurs due to smoke coming from kerosene lamp.
After distributing the solar tuki lamps, Mr. Rabindra Khatri, Program Officer in ECCA taught the villagers how to properly handle the lamp and how to do simple trouble shooting. Such orientation helps in increasing the life of the solar lamp and solar photo voltaic panel.
Sita studies in a local school in Punma village, located in Jajarkot district in Mid-western region of Nepal. There is no electricity in this village and hence life is difficult. She had to use kerosene lamps in the evening to study and to do her homework. Using dim light of kerosene lamp daily has affected her eye sight and the smoke emitted by the kerosene lamp created indoor air pollution. Her mother also had to use kerosene lamp to cook food for their family and to wash utensils.
After getting solar lamp from ECCA, she (as well as her family) are very happy. Their daily life has improved. Her studies also improved.
Sita, one of the recipients of the solar tuki lamp, expressed happiness and thanked all for the support provided.
There is no electricity utility in Punma village, located in Jajarkot district in Mid-western region of Nepal. After promulgation of new constitution in September 2015, Jajarkot district lies in province 6.
Because of no electricity, life is difficult specially for women, who need to do daily household chores. They need to use kerosene lamps in the evening to cook food for their family and to wash utensils. There is also indoor pollution, due to smoke coming from kerosene lamp, because of which many women have respiratory diseases. ECCA coordinated with local women group to provide solar tuki lamp to their members.
