Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
