Provide indigenous communities in the Papua province of Indonesia with a reliable and safe lighting source.
Lack of access to electricity: In isolated areas of Papua Province, Indonesia, indigenous communities lack access to reliable sources of electricity for household lighting purposes. As a result, communities must rely on traditional means of lighting their homes such as wood fires.
The Firefly solar lamps will help meet the household lighting needs of indigenous families in Papua Province, allowing them to carry out their day to day activities with greater ease. In particular, the solar lamps will allow children to study during evening hours.
Approximately 300 households, some from isolated mountainous areas and some from small islands off the coast of Papua Province.
Approximately 500 indigenous people, some from isolated mountainous areas and some from small islands off the coast of Papua Province.
The Firefly will be distributed to indigenous communities in mountainous areas by passenger aircraft and to communities on islands or near coastal areas using a boat. The technology will be given to families free of charge, as these communities do not have enough money to purchase the product, even at a reduced cost.
