Targeting: Quality of Care

Project Summary: 
A private donor connected through Kitechild has sponsored the roof reinforcement of the LAMP home. With this new construction, the home is now able to support a solar lighting installation composed of 3 indoor and 3 outdoor lights.

Projected Savings (Annual): $600 (estimated, as the home currently does not have electricity)

Impact

Short term:

  • Provide lighting indoors and outdoors at night, allowing children to work on their studies, and provide a safe, well lit exterior for security and comfort.

Long term:

  • As the children have more time to complete their studies, their performance in school will improve. The exterior lighting may prevent them from running into snakes and other hazards, elevating their safety and comfort at the home.

Number of Children :36

Partner Background: 
LAMP Home is located deep in the northeastern jungle of Andra Pradesh, near Rajahmundry, India. 20 of their children are true orphans, while the rest come from families affected by extreme poverty. Through LAMP, the children are able to attend school, receive three meals a day, and are cared for by long term caregivers who reside at the home. Parents visit when they can.

On progress, projects, and purpose in Kenya: Notes from the Field

160 days ago

It’s been 4 years since we broke ground on our first projects in Kenya: a series of chicken coops in 4 partner homes, targeted at elevating the quality of nutrition within each home by providing nutritious eggs to the children, which would otherwise be too expensive for the home to purchase in the market. Out of those 4 coops, only one exists today, and it has barely a handful of chickens.
