$35 for 35 years! Lights for Kenya 2015
You are invited to help celebrate the 35th anniversary of Farmers Helping Farmers with a $35 donation.
Our goal is to purchase 100 solar lights to distribute to our partners in Kenya.
We're calling our campaign "Lights for Kenya 2015".
Solar-powered lights have many benefits. The solar lamps allow the students to do homework at night. It gets dark in Kenya by 6:30 year round. Solar lights are safer than the candles or kerosene lamps that Kenyan families use now.
Many families use kerosene which costs money. Kerosene also gives off fumes that are not good for the families to be breathing in. Bright solar lights are an improvement on candles and kerosene lamps which can cause long-term eye strain.
Also, the families can charge their cell phones on the solar lamps. Cell phones are very cheap in Kenya – but they have to go to town to charge them – and pay to charge them.
More than 40 per cent of the population has mobile phones but the electric grid only reaches 20 per cent of the population. In 2014, Kenyans spent $155 million charging their phones.
A solar light with the capacity to charge a cell phone saves money and travel time.
A $40 solar lamp can make a big difference in many ways.
We hope you will join us in this meaningful celebration of 35 years of Farmers Helping Farmers.
