LIGHTS FOR NEPAL EARTHQUAKE SURVIVORS
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.
We have found many villages in Kavre, Palanchok district that are in urgent need of solar lights, as they have been living with no electricity even before the earthquake. Their homes are badly damaged and effected by the earthquake today.
Our goal is to help 500 families first. These are mountain villages with difficult road access, we have support from a volunteer group, Secret Garden Disaster Relief, trekking guides and locals from Nepal to help with the distribution of the lights.
Each family will receive 2 Nokero solar lights which lights up a house/shelter/tent for 6-7 hours. Please donate US$14 for a single light, US$28 to light up a home or any amount for us to reach the goal. Price includes cost of light, shipping, custom taxes and logistics to get the lights to the families.
Please also speak to us on collaborations, partnerships and sponsorship. We are always looking for likeminded people to get this projects going and getting more lights further into villages here. Photographic material and publications will be shared with all partners for awareness.

#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 mother’s to feed their babies, for children to read, shelter lights, walking lights and also works as an emergency light.
No more harmful kerosene lamps and fuel. No more candles, but solar lights to light up a home.
The ‘Give Them Light – Asia’ is a photographic project in creating awareness on human rights issues, children living in poverty and social issues in Asia.Via the project you can also purchase and donate Nokero Solar Lights which is send to those living without electricity.
Kiran Kreer (iMKIRAN) backpacks around Asia and uses images to create awareness about poverty, humanity & social issues. “We wish to give them something that could help lighten their burden of families living with no electricity.”
Support the ‘Give Them Light’ project

HOW DOES THIS WORK?
This chain reaction can only happen with ‘YOU’. When sufficient funds are collected for the total lights needed, we will purchase the Nokero solar lights and get them shipped to the location. With the help of locals and humanitarian partners the lights will be transported to the villages. The project will be photographed, documented and posted on the website.
Please also speak to us on collaborations, partnerships and sponsorship. We are always looking for likeminded people to get this projects going and getting more lights further into villages. Photographic material and publications will be shared with all partners for awareness.
