Solar Lanterns

Great Plains Foundation has a long-standing and strong relationship with the communities near our camps comprising the Okavango Community Trust.

These communities 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. 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.
