Light up student’s homes across Nigeria with environmentally friendly solar lanterns.
Inadequate power supply in Igbotako for families and students: Most families are unable to afford generators and kerosene lamps which hinders the ability of students to study at night. Furthermore, these power sources produce carbon monoxide emissions that can lead to serious health complications and even death.
The K-light solar lanterns will address the lighting needs of rural families, in particular students, during evening hours. The provision of the K-lights will also eliminate health hazards and costs associated with the use of kerosene lamps and generators. The technology will be distributed free of cost to 150 students from Igbotako who are among the top 10 in their class and meet the other pre-determined minimum requirements. 150 poor students and families in rural areas will benefit from this effort, and reaching a total 0f 1000 people.
The proposed immediate beneficiaries of this project are 150 poor students living in rural areas. The project will benefit a total of 1,000 people from 150 families.
For a student to benefit under this project, they must fulfill the following requirements:
|Product||Cost of the technology||30||150||4,500|
|Shipping||Cost of international shipping||1||470|
|Clearance and local duty||Based on the average clearance and local duty cost||1||400|
|Wire transfer fee||One transfer to tech provider, one transfer to cover local duty and clearance||45||1||45|
|Paypal/other payment processing fee||3.3% average based on the average size of project and average donation amount||3.30%||180|
|Kopernik fee||In order to cover due diligence cost that Kopernik conducts||282|
Fluctuations in currency exchange rates and shipping costs may change the final quantity of technologies shipped for this project.
ACAHD will contribute the sum of 500 USD in cash upon delivery but if the shipping costs do not cover the clearing. ACAHD will apply the funds to contribute towards forwarding and clearing.
