SOLAR LIGHTS NEEDED FOR CHILDREN IN NEPAL
The ‘Give Them Light’ project was started by nomadic photojournalist Kiran Kreer to deliver solar-powered lights to vulnerable families and children living without electricity. 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 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 effected by the earthquake today.
Our goal is to help 500 children first, a light for their education. These are mountain villages with difficult road access, we have the support from local Nepali volunteer groups, trekking guides and volunteers to help with the distribution of the lights.
Each child will receive 1 Nokero solar light for reading (shared in a family) and 1 which lights up a house for 6-7 hours. This lights will be mainly for children to read and family to use. Please purchase US$14 for a single light for a child, US$28 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.
We are always looking for likeminded people to get this projects going and getting more lights for children to read. 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 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.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?
This chain reaction can only happen with ‘YOU’. When sufficient funds are collected for the total lights needed for that certain area, we will purchase the Nokero solar lights and distribute them to children living with no electricity. Lights mainly for reading. A light for their education.
“You buy a solar light, and we will send it for to children in need. Wouldn’t it be amazing if all of these kids had their own solar light for reading?” – Kiran Kreer
