Project update - Solar Tuki, April 2011

Seasonal Greetings to all from Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness (ECCA), Nepal.

I would like to initiate this report with an acknowledgment to all our donors, supporters and well-wishers of our program – “A Clean Solar Alternative To Kerosene Lamps”.

In this quarter, we have continued our work in the sector of research and development sector for the production of new lights and designs, which will provide brighter and better lights. At the same time, we also focused in the promotion of solar tuki and the solar lights in the rural areas to reduce the use of kerosene lamp through cooperation with different local organization as per demand and request. Currently, promotion of solar lights in Kavre District through mobilizing local youths and their cooperatives are ongoing activities.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to all donors for your continuous support in our initiation of eradicating kerosene lamp from the rural regions of Nepal.  We would also like to request you to send us your feedback, comments and suggestion regarding our project at ecca@mos.com.np so that we could implement our programs more effectively.
