Project description

The design aims at providing an ambient, sustainable lighting solution that improves visibility at night time in riverine communities, restoring the community life, spark and happiness that has been overshadowed by darkness in these communities nationwide, essentially a pedagogical "LET THERE BE LIGHT” The Device is made of disposed plastic dispenser bottles with an infused mini solar panel that stores solar energy from daylight, to light up LED panels within the plastic dispenser bottles which in turn is dispersed by the water contained in the plastic bottles. The device thus radiates lighting.
