Give a Gift of Light to a Kenyan Family 

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

Many children in Kenya are very enthusiastic about education. Tabitha and Abel (pictured) live with their mother Magdalene Sembele. Tabitha is in school while Abel will start next year. Tabitha and Abel received their lamp in October 2019.

Prior to their solar lamp they used a paraffin lamp. The solar lamp provides them with a safe and clean source of light and  enables their mother to charge her phone instead of having to travel to the village centre to have it charged at a fee. 

 

 

Your solar light gift will:

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

Solar Lights cost €15 each.

The money raised from Afri’s 2018 campaign went to purchase over one hundred solar lights in Northern Kenya and Mogotio on the Equator, north of Nakuru.

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 to enable us to process your order.

They All Had Names

Afri has produced this badge as a way of remembering those nameless millions who have died during An Gorta Mór and those who continue to die as a result of hunger in our world of plenty today.

The image is the beautiful flower that grows on the potato stalk.

While many people wear badges or flowers to remember those who die in war – we want to provide a way to remember the forgotten people who die of hunger – often caused by war and climate change.

Available  with a  button fastener or with a pin at €3 each.
