BRIGHTEN THE CAMP – BRIGHTEN LIVES
Renewable energy technologies like the solar powered lamps can transform sunlight, wind, or water - into electricity. This can provide many benefits to people in the camp.
Children will have access to adequate lighting at night so they can do their homework (thus resulting in a lower drop-out rate at the local school). Education will be vastly improved and children will benefit.
Small business owners can use the light to support their activities after sunrise and continue making a living for their families.
The lamps can also provide an income for many households. Using the lamp, beneficiaries can earn a small yet sustainable income by charging others to charge their mobile phones easily.
Those who travel internally within the camp will be and feel more, safe. They will be able to use the portable lamps to see in the dark and this will also help prevent violence, particularly against women.
