Provision of solar lanterns for communities in remote areas of Atauro island.
No electricity access to communities in remote areas.
The solar lights will help with new technology adoption that will improve people's quality of life, enable students to study at night and enable better communication through the mobile phone charging capability.
200 households (around 1000 people)
The beneficiaries are communities from 3 villages (10 hamlets). They are poor communities, farmers and fisherfolk. Their income is very low and dependent on the weather. Ten hamlets have been identified and beneficiaries will be selected by lottery.
Our staff will work together with local authorities from the local area to sell lights to the households at a subsidised price of $12.50. The funds collected will be used to purchase more lights.
