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!

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!

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!

Many families rely on kerosene lamps to provide their basic lighting needs. GravityLight was designed as a replacement for GravityLight....providing a brighter, healthier and more affordable option than traditional kerosene lamps.

In #Western Province the theft of solar panels is common. GravityLight is immediately recognised as the solution, as it can be stored indoors, yet is not polluting like kerosene lamps. People are so grateful to our #team that they always insist on sharing their meal of ugali and chicken with them ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿด #kenya #africa #madeinkenya #madeinafrica #community #nptech #technology #charity #socialenterprise #life #changinglives #clean #dinner #food #typical #welcome #cause #solution

Collinse was invited by Damaris, a #UN Education Ambassador, to visit the Munongo primary school. He took over the class and gave a GravityLight lesson to students, parents and the teachers themselves! By the end of it, everyone was very impressed and the children learned that #physics lessons are not too bad after all :)

โ€œGravityLight has given us a source of #clean energy that is stress, danger and cost freeโ€ said Douglas, a small scale coconut and mango farmer from Kisiwa village. He was so impressed with GravityLight he admitted he was not in a hurry to sign up to the rural electrification programme that was expected to start in his sub-county. โ€œI have even forgotten the price of kerosene,โ€ he added with a smile.

#Didyouknow breathing in kerosene lamp fumes can cause severe #respiratory diseases as its equivalent to inhaling 170 cigarettes per year?
