The One Child One Light (OCOL) Programme
Transcript of The One Child One Light (OCOL) Programme
Villages in India still do not have proper electricity supply
Even if there is a power connection, the supply is often erratic
As a result school children living in these areas have to depend on kerosene lanterns and wicker lamps to study at night.
Kerosene is a volatile fuel and can explode and cause burn injuries if not handled properly
Kerosene lanterns emit soot and toxic fumes which may be harmful to the eyes and can cause breathing problems
Children will suffer because of this and may not be able to study comfortably.
There are nearly
such children in India alone and something needs to be done urgently to help them
programme aims to replace these Kerosene lamps with
Solar Powered LED Study Lights
Solar LED Study Lights provide a clean, safe, and bright environment for children to study in at night
Light Emitting Diode (or L.E.D.) is a special kind of lighting device that uses very little power to provide an extremely bright glow
A 0.3 Watt LED can provide light as bright as 10 Kerosene Lanterns
Each Kerosene Lantern consumes about 3.6 Litres of Kerosene a month which costs a family 45 Rupees and the Government 90 Rupees.
The LED Study Lights promoted by OCOL use 1 watt solar panel for charging at zero cost
Each Kerosene Lantern emits about 30 Kgs of Carbon dioxide (CO2) every year when used for 2-3 hours per day
Using a clean Solar LED Study Light instead of a Kerosene lantern prevents this as there are no harmful emissions
OCOL Study Lights have reached 800,000 Children. As a result, every year…
3,45,60,000 Litres of Kerosene is saved
86,400 Tonnes of CO2 Emissions are prevented per year
The State exchequer saves nearly 138 crore rupees which can be put to better use
Now, just imagine what a radical change it would be if
School Children in India could are provided with such a light!
By replacing Kerosene lanters we can
Save on costly kerosene
Save our family from health hazards
Prevent Carbon emissions and save the environment
Help our Government save money which can be used to help develop the nation
Stretch our fast depleting fuel reserves to last a little longer
Contribute to our nations economy
Help an underprivileged child get a Solar LED Study Light
Make a real difference to society and feel the pride
Help the nation!
