Teresia Mbaile's story

Teresia Mbaile is a 70-year-old Maasai woman from Tanzania with 9 children and grandchildren. When the younger ones come back from school in the late afternoon, it already starts to get dark. Teresia Mbaile wants to remedy that and bring lighting to the interior in the evening. The solar system improves the flexibility of the time schedule and the daily living situation.

The solar home system replaces Teresia Mbaile's kerosene lamps which pollute the environment and are a trigger for severe health problems and fires. Additionally, the solar home system also offers another source of income, with the help of the included charger she is able to offer phone charging.
