Solar Powered Family

Imagine coming back to your home at night or going into your bedroom and not being able to flick a switch and see what is there.

Rwanda is near the equator, and when the sun sets around 6:30pm most nights it quickly falls dark. Children study by candle or mobile phone light, or more often, go to school early the next day to get their homework done.
