This project will provide a solar lantern to one hundred and one girls from the poorest and Dalit families in rural Nepal. The girls struggle to study in the evenings and nights because they do not have electricity in their home.
Electricity supply has not reached to many rural villages in Nepal and if it has then there is no supply of electricity for hours, days or weeks. Children from the poorest and Dalit families use kerosene oil lamp to study in the evenings and nights. But this doesn't provide sufficient light to study and it also affects their health.
This project will provide a solar lantern to the one hundred and one girls. This will enable them to study in the evenings and nights. Nepal gets the sun light at least for 6-11 hours a day so they won't have any problem to charge the lantern.
The 101 girls will be able to study in the evenings and nights. Consequently, the girls will progress better in their study. This project is a supplementary project of 'The Girls' Education Project in Nepal'. The education project is financing all the 101 girls to go to school because girls' education has been ignored in Nepal for cultural traditions and financial reasons.
