Summary

One solar lamp help us reach 5 end-users, save families 10,000 MGA a month (from shifts on spending on fuel, candles, electricity), give children more hours for evening reading, give precious time for family gatherings, improve personal safety, reduce incidence of fires from kerosene lamps tipping over, decrease CO2 emissions with less pollution exposure. We need $3,720 to contribute and achieve inclusive tourism for better livelihoods by providing solar lamps to Isalo community members

Challenge

Access to electricity remains low with about 20% of the total population. Only 5% have access to electricity in rural areas. For most Malagasy households, especially in rural areas kerosene and candles for lighting are the most important energy sources

Solution

We contribute to achieve inclusive tourism for better livelihoods of community members. 82 lamps were distributed. We are joining efforts with the regional tourism board of Ihorombe to ensure basic human rights are met for our beneficiaries. Solar lanterns can positively affect a family's situation by using a high side lights as desk lamps or during nocturnal camping within the national park. When you give the gift of clean energy you also give precious time for family to spend time together

Long-Term Impact

Thanks to the continued support and commitment of donors and partners, we will continue to unlock people's potential to rise out of poverty and leverage services and technology for tourism workforce. 82 lamps were distributed thanks to micro grants, individual donations, and discount from suppliers. We contribute to achieve inclusive tourism for better livelihoods of community members
