CORRIDOR 14 COMMUNITY IN THE OMAHEKE RECEIVE SOLAR LANTERNS.
Corridor 14, a remote community in Namibia, has recently received a significant energy boost to their daily lives thanks to the Self Help programme run by the Ambassador of the United States in Namibia. Taatisolar supplied a total of 52 solar lanterns to 26 households as well as 26 flood lights for their livestock kraals. These lanterns not only provide light but also have the ability to play radio and music via USB and charge smartphones. The solar flood lights will shine at night into their livestock kraals to scare off predators and reduce the livestock losses of the farmers.
Overall, the development and implementation have brought much-needed light and security to the community of Corridor 14. The solar equipment provided will greatly improve the daily lives of the residents and help to mitigate human-wildlife conflict. This is a shining example of how small actions can make a big difference to the remote living offered by communities of Namibia.
