Lighting Student Homes
This project is designed to solve rural student’s serious problems. Students of rural areas mostly drop out from school. They have to travel long distances from and to school. No chance for then to study does their assignments. Such problems didn’t give them a chance to be competitive with urban students. After sunset no activities in rural areas as they don’t have light. Their main light sources are Kerosene and fire wood. Which is bad for health and poor brightness. Over 2000 students received solar lanterns to use it in the evening at their home. These students are now benefiting from the light and continued their studies.
