  • Need


    So the children have light to do their homework at night as it gets dark at 7pm. Also their health and safety will improve as they won't have fumes from the paraffin lamps and candles.


    Sunlight is free and a great resource for the children to do their homework and have better health.

  • Aims

    What success will look like

    Success will be...when enough money is collected for at least 200 families

  • Impact


    Families will have safer lighting in their homes which costs them nothing.
    There are mobile phone connectors which can be bought to charge their phones for communication.
    Less homes catching fire and children passing their exams.

  • Background


    Mityana, Uganda


    We have just set up three of our sponsored graduates in Uganda to market these solar powered products and all sales that we make in the UK will be channelled through them. So if you buy one, you are not only helping someone in Uganda to have a better life, but also help the graduates to kick start their businesses.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    We are always finding ways of developing and helping the people in Mityana and surrounding areas to improve their lives.
