Providing Hope, Opportunity & Dignity During COVID 19

2020 was a rough year for many families in Zambia due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many families lost their jobs and income. The most affected were people in rural communities whose income depends much on agriculture. Due to the lockdown, it was hard for them to get a fair price for their products because the government had imposed restrictions on the movement of goods. The schools were forced to close and children were meant to be at home.

Kukula Solar continued with the distribution of life-changing products such as clean cookstoves and solar lamps for families in last-mile communities.

Between October 2020 to January 2021, we distributed a total of 2072 clean cookstoves to rural villages of Eastern Province, enabling families living on less than $2 a day to transition from using firewood to use of twigs hence saving the cutting of trees.

We distributed 373 Solar lamps to families and 10 to Rural health centers in Katete, Chipangali, and Kasenegwa District of Eastern Province. With these distributions, we are helping children during the lockdown to study even at night. We are helping health workers to work at night because the clinic has solar lighting 24/7.

Our impact is felt in these communities during this period because of you are donors' continued support!. In 2021 we are looking forward to continuing with our distribution work, reaching more people with life-changing products.

 

We are on a mission to reach 1 Million people with life-changing products by 2027 and we are counting on you our supporters.

I look forward to your support this year as we work towards our goal of reaching 1 million people!
