Tabbaneh, one of the poorest areas of Tripoli: Imagine a one-room “apartment” in the basement of a building. We have to go down a narrow and low corridor. There are no windows for natural light: a room, a hallway (the kitchen), a bathroom (a shower and a toilet). A couple lives here with a 26-year-old daughter.
Thanks to the solar lamp system, you always have light in the bathroom at the end of the hallway. For them, light during the many power outages means they can move around or charge their smartphones – so life goes on and they stay in touch with their friends and families.

This solar lamp system provides lights in the nicht and allows the charging of mobile devices like smartphones or tablets. For us these are matters of course. Due to the collapse of electricity supply in Lebanon these kind of solution are in great demand.
- It makes people meet and see during the evening.
- It lightens your house during the night, when your baby is crying next door.
- It charges your empty smartphone to reach out for your family.
