is an innovative device that generates light from gravity and aims to replace kerosene lamps worldwide with a clean, safe and affordable solution.
Flashback to our 50-day roadshow across Kenya where we launched GravityLight with the help of Nigerian singer @yemialade!
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!
Raising awareness and building trust are important steps we need to take before introducing people to #GravityLight!
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!
#GravityLight is not only a #helathy alternative for people who use kerosene...but also #helps our planet and everything that live in it!
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!
Our road to success is (literally) full of obstacles, but we will never stop until we reach our #goal of eliminating kerosene lighting worldwide!
