Installation of solar water bottle lights

13 May 2013

After making 6 litres of lights for a local boma (home stead) we went to install them. LeKutiti Loshoro-the chairman of the local subvillage very kindly allowed us to use his homestead for our project. If anyone has ever been into a Maasai manyatta-house-they will know just how dark they are inside. It is absolutely pitch black! We took Kapalu -our Nomad Trust representative from the community- with us to help with explaining the concept in the local dialect.

A hole first had to be made in the top of the roof, and then the bottle carefully inserted with the iron resting as flat and low down in the roof as possible.
