"........... it should be a crime for us to subject our children to the fumes and pollution of kerosene lanterns as they do their homework......"
With Kenya's electrification rate at 18% according to KPLC, there are 32 million Kenyans that use among other sources, kerosene lanterns for their lighting needs. These lanterns are expensive, cause indoor air pollution and are a fire hazard. We believe that with solar lanterns being a mature and proven technology that is relatively cheaper than Kerosene over the life of the lanterns, that every household in Kenya should have a solar lantern. We have therefore set a goal of providing 1 million solar lanterns in Kenya alone to displace one million kerosene lanterns. To learn more about this initiative, please visit www.solanterns.com
