A Solar company known as Sunnymoney has been switched on in the capital Lilongwe which is going to improve lives of those people who are not connected to national power supplier.

The Operations Director for Solar Aid Malawi, Francois Gordon, says his organisation recognizes challenges learners are going through in various parts of the country.

Goldon told Nyasa Times in an exclusive interview that his organisation which is operating under Sunnymoney is in the country to complement government effort of providing conducive study and learning environment, by bringing in affordable solar lamps.

He said his company is distributing at a fee the cheap solar lamps which improves the condition of learners who in most cases do not have an access to electricity.

“The research has  shown that one hour is added when a learner is studying through the solar lamp S2 D,” said Goldon

Currently the company has sold 1 million solar lamps in various schools and homes .

The company operates in four countries and these includes Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia and Malawi.

Most Malawians have welcomed the company saying it will help to improve quality of education.

This is also the same company which supplied 124 solar lamps in Kasungu during the just ended tripartite  elections.

Goldon said the good news is that the solar lamps can also charge phones improving further the livelihood of those which have no access to electricity.

Studies show that only less that 10 % of population have access to electricity.
