Hadija and her family with an Ensol solar lighting kit, Bariadi, Tanzania
Hadija and her family with an Ensol solar lighting kit, Bariadi, Tanzania, August 2015. The kit provides solar panels that provide light and electricity to charge mobile phones and radios. The Ensol kits are supplied through local community finance organisations. Families like Hadija's pay in a small amount of money each month in return for the kit. Once they have paid the cost of it off, it is theirs to keep. UK aid is supporting small-scale solar schemes like across Tanzania working in partnership with the Dutch NGO SNV and other organisations.
