WHAT IS DARKNESS?

When darkness is not a choice, it means fear.
To be more precise the lack of clean light is one of the biggest hindrances in student performance for children. Compromising their futures and their dreams. 
The price of kerosene in East Africa is high. The smoke from Kerosene lamps is particularly
harmful to children’s health
Kenyan households use charcoal and firewood for cooking, with women and girl children spending on average 4 hours per day fetching wood. It is wasting women’s time, and it leads to
a high rate of deforestation.

LIGHT IS A GIFT

Solar lamps replace kerosene consumption and help households to save on fuel expenditure. They also provide bright light that enables children to do their homework after school! 
According to Overseas Development Institute (2016), p.15, study time increases by 32%, or 1 hour per day, with a solar lamp in the household.

Efficient Cooking Stoves reduce fuel (charcoal) expenditure by 50%, supporting and empowering women who run their own business, cooking food for the community and for their families.

Households can listen to the local news on the radio system. They can also charge mobile phones at home.
We give accessibility to information and the opportunity to raise a voice.

Stories of light

"GIVEWATTS is about dignity, respect for others, equal opportunity, and a hopeful future for the planet."

Fernanda Winckler

Working with the GIVEWATTS team gives me a great sense of pride and builds on my professional as well as personal growth. I also relate to the customers as I grew up in an area that does not have electrical power. My family and I relied on a kerosene tin lamp for lighting.
