Project goal: 500 lights
Note: This project has been completed. Read more about it here.
The Shree Mangal Dvip School is located in Namo Buddha, a remote region outside of Kathmandu, Nepal. There are approximately 500 students, from Nursery level up to Class 9, who study at this school. The entire community depends on kerosene for light, heating, cooking, as well as for reading and studying at night. Since the Shree Mangal Dvip school is located high up the mountains along the Kathmandu Valley, electricity is very limited. Families in Namo Buddha are without power nearly 80% of the time. Electricity is sporadic and inconsistent.
One Million Lights, a Bay Area non-profit, is dedicated to bringing solar lanterns to kerosene-dependent communities around the world.
