2010 DRC Solar lanterns

2010 DRC Solar lanterns

Thanks to a dear relation at Philips Light we got twenty brand new solar-powered lanterns in March 2010. This product is specially made for countries where electricity is a problem. Like Nepal in the dry season, when there are daily power outages that last hours on end.

We divided the lanterns between the DRC Nepal and the NWCSS orphanage. With the lanterns the children in booth homes can go on reading and studying even when the power is off. Before they could only go to bed very early.

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
