You can't read if you don't have light, we gave our literacy graduates a solar light in Kenya

Hi @davidsands, let me move this into the Education & Learning category.

Can you tell us more?

Our project (toothpickproject.org) involved mitigating a real problem for subsistence farmers in Kenya. The problem was a serious yield reducing parasitic weed, Striga (witchweed). As we trained subsistence farmers, who tended our research plots of the toothpickproject.org, it became clear that the best graduation present for subsistence farmers simultaneously trained to read and to solve their agricultural problems, was solar powered lanterns, so that they could be further empowered by reading. Check out the toothpickproject.org. Dave Sands davidsands41@yahoo.com

Thanks, @davidsands! I hope it’s OK if I share the video here you shared with me, so others can see? (You just copy-paste the YouTube URL in your post, and then the community automatically embeds it.)
