Kayirangwa Ndikumana* has been living in the Nduta refugee camp for the last 6 years. She is one of more than 150,000 Burundian refugees who fled their country after the presidential elections in 2015 sparked widespread human rights abuses.

As a single parent who is raising her 5 children on her own, life has often been challenging for Kayirangwa, but the Little Sun lamp is now playing a big role in her household. Every evening, as the sun hides behind the palm trees, the solar powered light switches on in her house to help her tidy up, prepare food in the kitchen, or support her children in writing their homework.

“The Little Sun lamp brings us together at the end of each day and we are very grateful for that. I also use it to check in on my children during the night and make sure they are safe. It brings me a well-needed peace of mind,” explains the mother.
