Amboseli Solar Lamp Project
The Amboseli Solar Lamp project is a charitable trust of EcoSolutions in conjuction with Mada Hotels that aims at bringing light to villages and providing LED lighting systems when access to electricity is scarce or completely unavailable.
EcoSolutions Founder, Mr. Yatendra Agrawal on one of his recent trips to Amboseli National Park, and staying at Mada owned Kilima Safari Camp noticed similarities between the Indian villages and rural communities in East Africa and decided to take action and in partnership with Mada Hotels, Eco Solutions began a mission to light up rural Kenya.
A total of 660 Sun King Eco Lamps have been distributed across 20 Manyattas in the National Park
The lamps are produced by Greenlight Planet that have proved to be very successful in remote areas where there is plenty of sunlight. The Sun King Eco Light that was chosen for the Manyattas around Amboseli can provide up to 30 Hours of light from a single charge. Glowing twice as bright as kerosene without any dangerous fumes with a five year battery life.
Mr.Yatendra hopes that after the success of the solar lamp project in Kenya, he will be able to start work on a low-cost gravity based water filtration system that can be easily installed in a plastic bucket.
"The joy of giving light to each household is unbounded. We hope to cover the northern part of Kenya, which is also a remote region with desert-type conditions and less economic activity."
