The lamps, equipped with a battery that allows them to shine for almost 5 hours between 2 recharges, are light and transportable (100g). They charge through a USD cable, directly from the panel or thanks to a battery supplied with the panel.
Use for lighting:
• In houses and in the village in the evening: dinner, homework, going to the toilet, moving around the village
• In the field cabins during harvest
• Travelling in the evening
Use for music:
For numerous years, many families have obtained portable speakers to listen to music after work. It is a much-appreciated comfort in these villages, where only the sound of the forest is audible at night normally.
Use for phones:
While there is rarely a network connection in Karen villages, all families now have a telephone. It is mainly used when travelling to the city, but it is also an opportunity to check in with loved ones, look at pictures or listen to music. There are more and more areas where the signal is available around the village. Villagers go there from time to time to keep in touch with the outside world.
