The “give one get one” concept impacts positively
The Natural Light project is built around the “give one get one” concept. This means, that for each solar lamp the festival guests buy they also get one for themselves. They can as an example use the lamp to light up their tents at night, while the recipients, children at schools and nurses at health clinics, can use the lamp to study and treat patients in the evening when it is dark and there is no electricity. The lamps will most definitely make a difference in the rural off-grid communities in Africa where they will be distributed.
Pictures of guests accompany the lamps of Africa
When the lamps are shipped off to Africa, they will not be alone in the box. Included in the box will be a small picture of the person or people who donated that specific lamp. During the festival, the VELUX volunteers made sure to photograph as many donors as possible, so their picture could be printed out and packed in the box by the volunteers. This way, the recipient of the lamp knows who gave them the lamp!
