Harnessing the power of the sun during daylight hours, ARAHA’s solar lamps offer a measure of security and comfort after nightfall. Solar lights offer an ideal solution to improving the safety of home life for families not connected to electricity. They also provide a healthy and environmentally-friendly alternative to gas- or wood-burning options. These lights are especially important for the protection of women and children against the ever-present threat of rape, assault, or other forms of gender-based violence. Providing a reliable source of light has been shown to dramatically reduce rates of gender-based violence, an outcome ARAHA rigorously pursues through its solar light program. For $50, you can provide a solar light for one person or family.
