Juliette Uwonkunda is living in the Kamonyi District in Rwanda and has found an added benefit to the Little Sun lamps: They allow her to pursue her passion for creating clothing.

“Sometimes, after revising their studies, [my siblings] lend me the lamp. I am currently learning to tailor clothes of different styles. Little Sun helps me especially when I am sewing at home.”

Access to clean energy has enabled Juliette and her siblings not only to revise for school, but also to learn new crafts, gain independence, and have fun together.

Juliette said, “Now, I do not have to ask everything from my parents; I can afford some of my needs due to tailoring earnings. Nothing makes me happy like seeing people wearing clothes that I made for them.”
