Gift a Gift of Light to a Kenyan Family 

(You can also buy a Famine Walk CD – see below for more details)

Give a gift of light to a family in Kenya. Children and families who do not have electricity will benefit from your gift.

Chepkeitany Chirchir is seen here holding an Afri solar light. She is seven years old and lives with her grandmother, Kogo Talai, in Sarambei, Kenya. Chepkeitany is an orphan. Her mother died and the whereabouts or her father is unknown. Her grandmother has a two acre farm and herds goats and sheep. Chepkeitany attends Sarambei Primary School.

 

Your solar light gift will:

  • Improve health…by avoiding use of kerosene;
  • Reduce poverty…by reducing cost of energy;
  • Increase income…by enabling people to work after darkness;
  • Reduce global warming…by replacing use of fossil fuels;
  • Contribute towards Afri’s climate justice work;
  • Support Afri’s partnerships with Development Pamoja and the Kenya Pastoralist Journalist Network.

€15 buys one solar light for a family

€30 buys one solar light for a midwife and one for a family

€60 buys four solar lights which will benefit midwives, families, schoolchildren and the wider community.  Families can use solar lights to enable them to work after dark, to supplement their income and to enable children to study in the evenings.

All the money raised from Afri’s 2016 campaign went to purchase over one hundred solar lights in Northern Kenya and Mogotio on the Equator, north of Nakuru.

In order that we can process your order please specify in the ‘Would you like to leave a message for Afri’ panel in the secure I-Donate window below that you would like to buy a solar light and provide a postal address.
