common. So kerosene lamp becomes a dominate but dirty and dangerous
lighting fixture.
What can we do for those who are eager to gain education but live in dim lamp light? Solar is particularly available and adequate resource in Africa.is designed to solve the problem. It functions as hood for local, meanwhile, it can absorb and store solar energy when local uses it in the daytime. In the evening, it always lights, so that when it is casually put on a stump or desk, it brings African lots of convenience.
