Change Student's Life by Supporting a Solar Lamp

by Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) Vetted since 2013

Summary

Most of the Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh is non-electrified and people here are very poor so maximum people live in dark due to the increasing market price of kerosene. Student's education gets hampered for the want of light at night. Sometimes students' education comes to an end and they engage with collecting natural resources specially depend on Mangrove forest in their whole life. But one single solar lamp can change a student entire life.

Challenge

Lack of electricity has adverse impact of a non-electrified area's Students. Dropout students of Sundarbans coastal region generally involve them with natural resource harvesting and they get married at an early age. As a result, the girls face pre mature pregnancy. In a word, so many social problems arise when literacy level gets down. It also creates a strong barrier to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Bangladesh governments RUPKALPA

Solution

Sundarbans coastal poor community who can't afford to buy Kerosene will get solar lamps from this project. So, the students who are at the risk of stopping their study due to lack of light; will be able continue their study in the long run. The students will able to study at night. It will enhance their study. These solar lights will provide safety to the family members at night from disaster and wildlife. So, the number of dropout students will be decreased.

Long-Term Impact

A solar light helps a student to continue their study. When students become educated, they become an asset for the society. They involve in social development activities. An educated man goes against the prejudice and social problems. Educated generations can change the total scenario of a society. If we support the students by providing solar lamps; we believe it will change their entire life and at the same time those educated people will become the leaders to solve all the social problems.
