One of the key challenges we face is building trust within the communities where we work. Raising awareness about the risks of kerosene lamps often makes people more receptive to hearing about #GravityLight!
Every #GravityLight comes with two additional SatLights that are ideal for tasks like homework! Our designers even included an innovative 'twist' switch which enables users to control each light individually!
Following trials of GL01, the design team returned to the drawing board to solve a few key issues that arose with the beaded cord getting tangled. Our engineers developed an innovative solution by developing a system to ensure the cords would not get tangled again!
Many #homes in #Kenya are constructed from highly flammable materials. Overturned kerosene lamps can quickly catch fire and burn down a house in minutes. #GravityLight is a safer alternative for those who rely on kerosene lighting!
GravityLight Kenya has been visiting @BetterLifeDisabled group at Kwa Kathoka, Makueni county. This is a self-group for women and men who are physically challenged. They came together to support each other both financially and emotionally, to share advice and visit one another. They enjoyed the simplicity of GravityLight very much!
