SOLAR LIGHTS NEEDED FOR CHILDREN
The ‘Give Them Light‘ project was founded by a documentary photographer Kiran Kreer to deliver solar-powered lights to vulnerable families and children living without electricity. It became a personal journey and soon a social project called ‘Give Them Light‘ during the Philippines Haiyan (Yolanda) Typhoon in November 2013, with more stories of those who survived the disaster, where he started raising funds to donate solar lights and other aid to these survivors in Asia.
Ongoing: On April 25, 2015 there was a devastating, magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Nepal with its epicenter 43 miles northwest of Kathmandu. This earthquake (also known as the Gorkha earthquake) killed more than 8,800 people and injured over 23,000.
On Sept 2015 we have found many areas in Kathmandu, Kavre & Sindhupalchowk district that are in urgent need of solar lights, children here are living with no electricity even before the earthquake. Their homes are badly damaged and affected by the earthquake today.
Current Project: My next goal is to help 1000 children, a light for reading, in Malaysia, India & Nepal. These are mountain villages with difficult road access, with no electricity and clean water, we have the support from local volunteer groups, guides and volunteers to help with the distribution of the lights.
Each child will receive 1 Nokero solar light for reading and 1 which lights up a house for 7-8 hours. This lights will be mainly for children to read and mothers for feeding and cooking. Please purchase US$15 for a single light for a child, US$30 to light up a home or donate any amount for us to reach our goal. This includes cost of light, shipping, custom taxes and logistics to get the lights into different villages.

#GiveThemLight – The Movie
Why donate solar lights? Simple, it’s not just an item to be donated to help light up homes, it’s a gift of hope, it’s to pass on a message that people around the world still care and it’s a ‘door opener’ for others to notice them to get more help into this areas.
Most importantly it’s clean green energy for children to read, mother’s to feed their babies, for women to protect themselves, shelter lights, walking lights and also works as an emergency light.
