In the summer of 2013, a pilot project was launched in Birgunj, Nepal where “Solar-Bottle-Bulbs” were used as a lighting system to combat the issue of accessibility and affordability of electricity in underprivileged communities. 134 “Solar-Bottle-Bulbs” are installed in 81 households as a source of lighting system in six different wards within the sub-metropolitan city of Birgunj.
In Birgunj only the day lighting system was installed in Dom community of Birgunj to help them provide a lighting solution during day time. This project was done with the help of community members. This project tagged along the local youth of the that area from creating the day lighting system to the installation of this project in that area. It taught youth a new set of skills to the youths in birgunj and a new innovative idea was thus got implemented in one of the marginalized community of Nepal.
