Solar PV lamps were distributed to the members of Shree Gundi Pariwartan Women Group in a remote village of Gundi, Rapti Municipality-13, Chitwan in central Nepal, where there is no access to electricity. Mrs. Remika, member of Shree Gundi Pariwartan Women Group shared, “the support of clean and portable lamps allows children to do their homework after dusk and provides residents with a cleaner source of lighting for their homes. Solar PV lamps have now replaced kerosene lamps, significantly reducing health hazards such as burns and toxic fume inhalation. We are very thankful for the support.” 

ECCA has been promoting the use of affordable and much more sustainable solar lights, to replace kerosene lights that are used in most houses where they have no electricity.

We are also thankful for your support.

President of Janajyoti Women Group, Mrs. Kumari now uses daily the solar lamp provided to her by ECCA. The use of solar lamp has eased her daily life (during cooking and other household chores in the evening). Her children could also now study better in the evening, which has improved their education.

Earlier, they had to use kerosene wicked lamp, as there is no electricity utility grid in her village Santhali, which is located in a hilly area in north Chitwan, south central Nepal. The indoor pollution created when using kerosene wicked lamp is also now no more, thereby improving the family health.

ECCA is thankful for the support.

Kalitar village of Rapti Municipality in Chitwan district, Nepal lies in a very hilly area. National grid electricity has not reached there because of difficult geographical terrain.

ECCA provided solar photovoltaic lamps to each of the 25 members of Janakalyan Women Group, Kalitar. They were also provided orientation on solar energy, how to properly use solar lamp, and its simple maintenance.

Symrang village of Rapti Municipality ward 13 of Chitwan district (central Nepal) is the home of indigenous Chepang people. The village struggles with various development constraints, and no connectivity with national electricity grid is one of them.

After the support of portable solar lights to the villagers, besides powering home, the solar lights have helped in outdoor livelihood activities as well. During sowing and harvesting season, one has to walk for hours in dark while returning back home from early morning to late evening work at field. Earlier, the villagers used to climb steep hills in dark night fearing the rocks and loss of balance in the way.

ECCA is thankful for your support.

Your contribution has helped us support improving the living standard of rural communities.
