Project Source aims to remove the use of kerosene lamps in rural communities in favour of a safe, reliable, and sustainable source of light. We saw an opportunity to reduce kerosene usage, provide sustainable lighting to marginalised communities, empower beneficiaries, and tackle poverty.
Using simple materials, consisting of recycled plastic bottles filled with water, and LED lights connected to a compact solar panel, we produce a solar bottle, which was installed in the roof and grouted to prevent water ingress.
