E-Team spotlight: Solar lanterns for Ghana


Since Fall 2006, the SociaLite E-Team has worked on bringing solar lighting systems to rural regions of Northern Ghana and Southern Rwanda. The current phase of the project is to sell their innovative solar lamp to villagers.

The team has recently seen its first sale in Tampaala where 25 lamps were purchased by villagers.  “…they were highly motivated,” says Noble Ayikutu, E-Team member from Wa Polytechnic, Socialite's partner in Ghana. “They needed more.”

In addition, the team was able to visit other sites that may be able to use the solar lamp, including Bazeng and Namberg. Keep up with the project.
