Nawwar (Lighting For Rural Communities)

About

32% of Egyptians live within rural areas with limited acces to public lighting and electricity.

Alternatives like kerosene-powered lanterns are hazardous and harmful to the environment. Nawwar is a low cost, easy to manufacture, portable lighting unit powered by solar energy. It provides a solution for rural communities in their day-to-day challenges and helps them navigate around their village at night safely.
