Transcript of One Child One Light (OCOL) Programme

The One Child One Light (OCOL) Programme
More than
villages in the country do not have access to electricity
Some of the villages connected to grid face the problem of erratic power supply
School children living in these villages have to necessarily depend on kerosene lanterns/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 are harmful to eyes and also cause breathing problems
Other problems of use of kerosene
- high cost, health risks, unsafe, poor illumination and carbon emissions
There are more than
130 million such children in India alone. They need to be helped for their development and in turn development of the country

Solar LED Study Lights give 30 times brighter light than a kerosene lamp
Each Kerosene Lantern consumes about 3.6 litres of kerosene a month which costs a family 45 rupees (USD 0.75) and the government 90 rupees (USD 1.5) .
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
OCOL Study Lights have reached 1 Million Children. As a result, every year…
43.2 Million
litres of kerosene is saved
tonnes of CO2 emissions are prevented
The State exchequer saves nearly
1.42 billion
rupees (USD 23.6 Million) which can be put to better use
There are still many miles to go
