For many families in rural Africa their day becomes even more difficult as soon as the sun goes down and darkness takes over. Candles are expensive and can be dangerous, and so with no access to electricity even the smallest tasks are a challenge without light. In particular children can find it very difficult to do their homework, study, or read. A Solar Lantern provided by Send a Cow not only gives 30 hours of light to cook and work by, they can also charge mobile phones. This allows families to generate another source of income in their communities.

For our 25th wedding anniversary we thought the best gift was one which would last – not just for us but for whole communities. A Send a Cow gift was the obvious choice!

One of the first examples of using solar energy was the use of a solar collector box to cook food during an expedition into Africa in the 1830's by British astronomer John Herschel. We give this gift in Rwanda.
