Light for Life
Love Ghana has identified a lack of mains electricity as a cause of continuing poverty in the areas where we work. We are partnering with Creativenergie who have developed a sustainable solution for this problem.
Many rural communities in Ghana are off-grid and have very little access to electricity. Villages are spending more than a quarter of their income on alkaline batteries and poor quality torches.
Solar solutions offer a significant improvement but the initial cost is beyond most people. Light for Life is a collaboration between Love Ghana and CreativEnergie
We are developing technology to provide solar charged batteries and quality torches at a lower cost than the current alkaline battery powered solutions.
Long term, we hope to enable every house in a village to have their own solar solution. In 2019 we brought a solar charging kit to the village of Have Tornu to trial some of the technology.
In 2020 we will be setting up two solar kiosks in villages off-grid which will provide charging facilities for batteries and phones.
