Quite recently, YesLiberia introduced a solar lantern pilot project to help dedicated students become honor roll students. These lanterns help students study at night in rural areas with no electricity. The solar powered lantern is safe and can stay on for 8 hours, 7 days a week, before requiring a recharge in the sunlight. Compared to the unsafe kerosene they have to purchase daily for smokey lamps, this solar lantern is not only cost cost-saving, it also allows people to charge any prepaid cell phones in remote villages and is almost impossible to break. YesLiberia believes this clean solar powered lantern will allow school children adequate light to study and do their homework after long hours walk home from school.
My name is Briyanna Tiafoe, one of the leaders of the African Diaspora Club at Towson University. I am of Liberian and Sierra Leonean descent. Education in Liberia is not as promising as it is in America and I want to do whatever is in my power to help with that. I want the youth to remember that knowledge is power! One reminder I always live by, is that no matter what we may be going through, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Help me to be the light at the end of these children’s tunnel. I’ve vowed to raise funds for 15 solar lanterns at a cost of $65 each. With your support, 10 families will have access to lights at night for studying, dinner, and family story-times.
