Solar Tuki- A Boost for Education Improvement in rural Nepal

Solar tuki lamp distributed in Morang back in June is helping the students in their education. 

Prerana, a grade 10 student, reveals how the solar tuki lamp is affecting her education. "The solar tuki lamp has been a great help at night. In the day time, we charge them at school and at night, we can study after the household chores are over."

"Solar tuki lamp has definitely been a boost for our education", says the Principal of Shree Sagma Secondary School.

This solar PV based technology is simple to handle, is portable and gives enough light for several purposes. With over 110 solar tukis distributed to 3 schools in the new academic year, the solar tukis have proven to be a huge support for the families of the students. Kerosene lamps are being used lesser now (in the village), with growing use of solar tukis and the villagers are now more aware about alternative sources of energy.

And they don't have to worry when the tukis need repairing. One teacher from each school has taken Solar Tuki Repairing Training. So far, solar tuki has been very effective to boost education and livelihood  in rural villages, such as Morang which is devoid of grid electricity.

We are really thankful for your support in helping us promote this technology in rural Nepal. Your continous support will enable us to help more needy areas of Nepal.
