The first involved the replacement of dangerous and very harmful kerosene lamps to solar lights. Team involved active members of the community to establish a company renting solar lamps.
The solution turned out to be not only better for health and the environment but also more efficient (cost of renting the lamp was lower than to buy kerosene). The solution has reduced respiratory health problems by 90% among those who use solar lamps and significantly reduce the number of people who suffer from burns caused by accidents with oil lamps.
