500 WakaWaka lampjes voor War Child

Frank Goovaerts on the initiative: ‘The smart WakaWaka Lights work on solar energy and this matches very well with Zonline. At Zonline we are very committed to projects like this and to continue our ‘Rooftop Revolution’  which focuses on a major switch to durable energy. Having electricity and light is very normal for us but there are still a lot of places where this is not the case. War Child is planning to distribute the lights to school-going girls in a project in Uganda. These girls are the most vulnerable for violence and abuse. Thanks to the lights they won’t be in the dark when doing their daily activities like going to school, collecting water or firewood  because they have WakaWakas to provide them with light.’ 

Maurits Groen, Founder of WakaWaka: ‘Worldwide there are still 1,3 billion people without light who are dependant on toxic and dangerous kerosine lamps. The super-efficient WakaWaka is easy to charge with sunlight en makes it very practical and clean!’
