Solar-Powered Lights for Off-Grid Poor Families II


We will purchase at volume and distribute to our small self-help groups on credit ultra-affordable study and work solar lanterns that will provide 4 hours bright light on a full day's charge using highly efficient light-emitting diodes. Our lantern provides focused light that can be oriented in any direction, making it ideal for studying or working. The solar panel is conveniently integrated into the lamp to make solar charging simple and easy. We will target 2,500 beneficiaries for Phase 2.

Families living in far-flung areas that are not reached by electricity are hampered by the lack of light in the evening. They have difficulty in doing ordinary chores in the evening and school children have a hard time studying. Productivity in the household is also difficult.


The project will distribute solar lanterns to poor families living in off-grid areas in the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte and Misamis Oriental. The solar lanterns are charged via ordinary sunlight and this will provide continuous light at least 4-6 hours per evening. This will enable the family members to continue doing their household activities and school-children to study thus increasing the productivity of the family. We will also provide farming inputs to boost productivity.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in socio-economic conditions of poor households living in off-grid communities. Improvement also of the studying capacity of school-children and potentially giving them high chance of being good citizens in the future.
