Banish darkness, light a lamp in Nepal

Aug 8, 2011

You did it! Light comes to 65 families--read how.

Sixty five families -- all of the homes in a small fishers' village in Nepal, will soon have LED lamps thanks to you,  GlobalGiving's donors. Designed, built and installed by VillageSolutions (our Nepalese partner), these systems include three lamps, each with its own switch, which are installed in the homes, much as our own home wiring systems. A 3 watt solar panel provides energy, under the supervision of an electronic "charge controller", in a manner designed to maximize the useful life of the battery. During the installation, VillageSolutions will find and train a local person to provide future maintenance.

Please look at the first attachment for a closer view of this village and its people.
