If your organization wants to help people in off-grid communities, you can use solar lighting to make a real difference. With reliable lighting, adults are able to put more time into businesses, bringing in more income for the family. Children can also study after dark, making the most of educational opportunities.
Crucially, solar lights eliminate the need for kerosene lamps, so families can discard a dangerous health hazard and reduce their living costs. A typical Kenyan family can spend $157 per year on kerosene. But with a basic solar lantern costing around $13, or a solar home lighting system costing $60, they get safe, reliable light for free.
