We need your support to turn on the light of hope in Africa
What is Solar Project?
We provide solar powered lamps to homes and other places without electricity in East and West Africa (Tanzania and Burkina Faso). The lamps use natural sunlight to charge during the day to provide light at night for children who do not have a chance to learn during the day because of their work in the fields. They will have the opportunity to learn to read and write, so they may read the Bible and prepare for a brighter future. The lamps also help the church and ministry workers to work at night as well. With each solar powered lamp comes a cartoon gospel message in their own language.

The lamp takes about 1 month to manufacture and 1 month to ship via container.
Within 2 months the lamps will arrive in African countries such as Tanzania and
Burkina Faso. We have the proper government support and so the lamps will be
sent to the places that are in need and will safely reach their destination through
churches. Initially, we are planning on shipping 13,000 lamps to Tanzania reaching.
We estimate that about 40,000 people will receive bright light assuming
there are 3 people household.
Testimony of Kim Jung Han Missionary In Maasai, Kenya
The area that the Maasai tribe lives in has no electricity or drinking water. They live in houses made of cow dung. Most children do not attend school. Instead, they move from field to field all day long to raise the family livestock. By the time they come home, it is dark and late at night. I gathered the children and started a school at a church for those who could not go to school during the day. In the church, I turned up the light using oil lamp as much as possible, so the church will be bright enough to read. I taught them the alphabet and math in Swahili. I began to register kids into the school after I taught them the basics of reading and writing.
Out of our program student have become pastors, principals, teachers and professors. In the year 2013, there was even a governor from that program who ran to be a congressman. I built 2 churches while I was there, but it’s now grown to more than 60 churches.
This is my personal testimony. The first and most important thing is for children’s faith in God and receiving salvation. Secondly, it is important that these children be educated to grow up to be leaders of their country and communities. I think that is the power of education. In my experience, it was very important to provide a learning environment, even at night, to the children and youth. That is the foundation necessary to raise up the next generation of leaders.
This is our motivation. I think we must invest in solar lights into all the places in the world where electricity is not available so that children and youth can learn at night, and so we can lead them to be children of God. It is our very important mission to help them grow to be leaders. I pray that this mission goes abroad and is used by those areas where there is no electricity. This will help them to become Christian leaders of their community.
