In the rural areas, it gets VERY dark at night as the moon is the only light source. Homes don’t have electricity and candles/oil lamps are often too expensive to operate regularly. We were thrilled to find these solar kits available again at the Gables! Each kit, costing about $100 USD, offers 10 YEARS of light. And they can charge their cell phones and play the radio on it as well! Thanks to our donors, we purchased many kits on our trip this month. If you swipe through the pictures, you can see Nothando’s brother placing her new solar panel on the roof of the home we built for her, her daughter, and the cousins she raises.
