Dutch company donate 10000 Waka Waka lamps to Haiti

A lighting and energy company of Dutch origin has promised to supply Haitians living in darkness with 10,000 lamps in form of a donation.


After the famous 2010 earthquake most Haitians are still living in darkness or using expensive and toxic kerosene fuel for lighting and energy.

The announcement comes as a relief to the needy citizens of Haiti who will now have access to the Waka Waka solar lamps from Off Grid Solutions. The donation will be done in parallel with the company's marketing campaign of the new lamp model. The new model consists of a solar lamp and a smart phone charger. The new Waka Waka lamps are essential for backpackers and people travelling.

Off Grid solutions have promised to donate one solar lamp to Haiti for every unit sold

The introduction of the lighting system will improve the light and energy efficiency. Haiti will now experience a higher learning rate, more security and better sanitation. There will also be an increase in business.

With the estimation of 5 people per Haitian family the donation is expected to affect the lives of 50,000 people. Off Grid solutions is consulting with local NGO's to come up with an implementation strategy. The project is expected to roll out in spring.
