This project will provide sturdy solar lamps for 700 families in off-grid, remote villages in order for farmers to continue doing productive work in the evenings and children to study and improve their chances in life once they finish their studies.
Off-grid families without access to electric energy lived very disadvantaged lives. Once the sun sets, they left with nothing to do but sleep even if is too early. With a solar lamp with a radio, they will be able to do additional chores or continue with their livelihoods that can be done in the house. Children too can study and increase their chances in life.
Solar lamps will provide off-grid families with tremendous benefit as the light continuing in the evening will enable them to do various chores and the children will be able to study their lessons or play. The radio in the lamp will enable them to listen to music, news and current events and will not make them ignorant. We will purchase sturdy solar lamps and distribute them to the remote communities we serve.
Improvement in the income and livelihood of community residents able to access solar light and make their activities unhampered. Improvement also in the chances of children when they are able to study long into the night which will enable them to perform in an excellent manner in their schools.
