KMET together with Ovaat One Village At A Time provides gravity lights to the needy pupils

Pupils from Nina primary school in Siaya County together with the community had a reason to smile after receiving lamps that will help curb learning challenges in the households.

KMET noted that lack of proper lighting in homes leads to poor performance among students in schools. Students use outdated light sources such as candles which can’t sustain them for long. Some go the whole night without attending to their homework and even studies.

KMET identified a number of class eight pupils who are less privileged and a teacher to receive the lamps known as Gravity light, courtesy of Susan Rose of Ovaat One One Village at a Time program. One village at a time is an NGO which aims at nurturing hope, restoring health by connecting resources to create a self-sustaining community.

Even though the gravity lights are given to the students, Beatrice Akinyi from KMET confirmed that the rest of the students will use them on reaching class eight after the beneficiaries will have handed them back over to the school administration.

The twenty-five from Nina village in Alego sub-county were issued with the Gravity lamps after a training on how it functions. Collins Kwach from Gravity Light Kenya gave a thorough training of how the lamp works and its components. He later put to task the beneficiaries to operate the light which is powered by force of gravity.

Parents, teachers and students thanked the organizers for the support they received.
