We have developed a specific training method combined with a community approach, which empowers people with real understanding of sustainability and basic knowledge to build a solar lamp.

We have designed an innovative solar lamp made up of only 5 carefully chosen electrical components, which can be self-assembled by anyone. It is the cheapest available solar lamp (2$), which has potential to replace kerosene lamps (2$/week for fuel). It can be assembled without prior technical knowledge, using locally available material, and is easy to repair at the village level after a basic training. Our aim is not just to sell the lamp but use it as a medium to teach people about sustainability and energy, and make them realise that technology is accessible to them if they want it. That it is not just a phenomenon in the West that must be imported.
