Challenge: 

The high number of refugees and the unstable economy in Jordan resulting in rampant poverty and unemployment to the country. The refugees have difficulty to compete to get employment and pay for the bill at the same time.

The refugees also need electricity to be able to connect with their families and friends as they are unable to charge their mobile phone without electricity. The cost of electricity is a significant burden on the budgets of refugees.

How we can help: 

By introducing d.light S300 with the refugees in Aqaba, these lights will reduce household costs but also allow refugees to stay connected with their family and friends as the light have the ability to charge portable electronics devices, including smart phones.

Who are we working with: 

Syrian refugees who are fleeing the conflict from starvation and persecution.

The solar lights will be distribute to the refugees in Jordan with the help from Human Relief Foundation.
