Solar Lantern Project



Great Plains Foundation has a long-standing and strong relationship with two communities near our camps: the villages of Seronga and Gudigwa. Both are home to our Foundation projects that focus on skill development and conservation education. Through our partnership with these villages we are working to address some of the challenges facing individuals living on the edge of the Okavango Delta.

Whilst the challenges vary one thing adds to the difficulty of life here: the lack of light. Candles and paraffin lanterns are used by most households, but bring with them a very real risk of fire. Great Plains Foundation has launched a project to distribute much needed light to the people of Seronga and Gudigwa. By buying this lantern you are giving a safe and sustainable light to a member of the community to use for school studies, to create handiwork to sell, and to thus illuminate opportunities.

Join us in giving this simple gift, the gift of light.

Requested donation of USD 35 per lantern.
