Solar Lantern Monitoring Continues

By LeRoy Boikai | President

Since returning from Liberia in February when 504 new lanterns were distributed to new families in rural Liberia, our volunteer team has been actively monitoring the use of lanterns that we have distributed over the past two years. About a third of the previously distributed lanterns are no longer functioning. The team has collected those lanterns and brought them to Monrovia for repair to be returned as soon as the repair is completed. Observation from the field attributes some of the light failures to mishandling and improper charging that have led to dead batteries. We will continue to educate villagers on effective ways to use their lights so that they remain in service for a much longer time of three to four years. A major goal of this project is to implement a good recycling program so that lights that are no longer in service can be retrieved, repaired and when no longer functioning to be disposed of properly.

We continue to rely on your support to reach our goal of helping 3000 village homes obtain reliable clean solar lights in the next year or two.
