Solar project improves quality of life for 75 Lao families

In Sep 2010, a German-Lao collaboration improved the lives of 75 Lao families by replacing their kerosene lamps with solar lanterns. Unlike the kerosene lamps, the solar lanterns are a safe and convenient light source that do not emit harmful fumes and cause CO2 pollution. With the lanterns, children can now read at night, women can weave or perform manual work longer, and men can go out at dusk to hunt. This results in more income generation activities for the families, and an improved quality of life.
