Families living and working on the Vijayawada dump do not have access to electricity in their makeshift homes, so KISES has been handing out solar lights as part of their ongoing humanisation programme.

“These people live in homes constructed of any materials they find lying around in the dump and have no facilities at all,” says KISES UK volunteer Jem King.

“Without electricity, they rely on fires for cooking, but have no way of seeing in the pitch black  of the dump after dark. We hope these small solar lamps will make life just that little bit easier.”
