The challenge: Light is one of the most important element directly linked with the socio-economic development of a family. Unfortunately, more than 30 million people of Bangladesh still living in darkness depending on candles or kerosene lamps which are expensive and health hazardous. From a recent research, it has been found that the monthly lighting expenditure of a family in off grid areas is around 250-350 BDT. If the family have one or two students the cost is around 750 BDT/Monthly.
We are targeting to sell 5000 Solar Lantern this year through tribal communities and off grid area.
