The Grid Earth Project, 1% Club and Waka Waka Light Change life in Cayo District
Date:6/6/2013

Cayo District Belize (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

An amazing thing happened in May of 2013. The Villages of Armenia, St. Mathews and Los Tombos all took a 150 year leap into the future.

Until now they have been living with kerosene lamps and candles for household light. According to the World Health Organization, early 1000 people die daily from burns caused by kerosene lamps.
Another 2.5 million die from respiratory illness caused by breathing toxic fumes.

Grid Earth Project distributed over 300 Waka Waka solar lamps to all of the households in these villages. Now the burns and illness associated with living without access to safe light is a thing of the past in these villages and thousands of people will live better lives as a result.

The project was made possible by generous contributions made through the 1% Club.

The Grid Earth Project distributes solar light in underdeveloped areas that do not have access to electricity. It is impossible to know which of these children were not harmed due to the elimination of kerosene lamps in their homes. We can however measure the results in other areas. In follow up studies, over the last three years, we have seen not only the fire and burn tragedies practically disappear, we have seen vast improvements in the reading and math scores of the school children in these areas. Simply because it does not hurt their eyes and lungs to study, the students tend to study longer. Children in these areas value knowledge and have a thirst for education. The education that will result in increased economic opportunity.

The Grid Earth Project would like to extend our deepest thanks to all those that made this project in Cayo District a success and would invite you to look at our next 1% Club Project.
