I am able to take my medicine at night because of constant light
“Esther and her granddaughter are checking messages from her phone while it’s charged by Barefoot Go250”
Esther Ocaya, 64, cannot imagine going back to a life without solar light.
In the past, she would struggle to raise 1000UGX everyday (about $9 a month) to buy kerosene for lighting. Kerosene lamp would not last long, occasionally, it would run out and the family were forced to spend the rest of the night in the dark since they lived far away from trading center where they could purchase kerosene. Furthermore, the soot from the kerosene transferred onto their clothes. Even worse, the smell of kerosene sometimes transferred to the food and making it inedible.
With the light from Barefoot GO, Esther now has clean, bright and constant light. This means that they can sit together as a family after dinner and talk. When Esther is sick, she is able to find her way around the house to get her medicine. Her granddaughter also has light to help her get dressed in her uniform and be ready for school in the morning. Esther is also able to charge her phone which helps her keep in touch with friends and family.
Esther says; “The Barefoot Solar light has really helped me and I encourage people who are still using kerosene lamps to embrace these products because in my home we use Barefoot solar which gives us clean light and there is barely any difference between us and someone using Umeme (grid electricity) at home.”
