GIVE THEM LIGHT – Asia
The ‘Give Them Light’ project is a photographic journey about creating social awareness into the lives of children and villagers living without basic needs and in poverty. Kiran Kreer (iMKIRAN) backpacks around Asia and uses images to create awareness about poverty, humanity & social issues. Also to create a connection between societies using arts & photography.
Via the project you can also purchase and donate Nokero Solar Lights which is send to those living without electricity, we wish to give them something that could help lighten their burden of families living with no electricity. “Something simple, like a light, can put a smile on a child’s face” – Kiran Kreer
Why Solar Light? Simple, it’s not just an item to be donated to help add some light in homes, it’s a gift of hope, it’s to pass on a message that people around the world still care and see them as part of the human society. Most importantly it’s clean energy for mother’s to feed their babies, for children to read, fisherman boats and also works as torchlights.
No more harmful kerosene lamps and fuel.
