Right Light is a project founded and funded by Enactus Southampton at the University of Southampton. It has been successful in Madagascar and Kenya before and JEEP has partnered with Enactus to implement the scheme in rural Uganda in January 2013.

Right Light aims at spreading the use of solar lamps within Ugandan communities. After getting to know the targeted villages and giving out testing lamps, JEEP provides a chosen resident with financial and technical training to become a local entrepreneur for their village, running a solar lamp renting/selling business. After paying off their lamps at a rate of 20% of their income, the entrepreneurs will be completely independent, by then making their own strategic and financial decisions.

We have chosen Kasese District as a pilot location for the Right Light project; in specific, we are working with the following ten communities:

  • Kahokya
  • Mithibiri
  • Nakulabye
  • Bukumbia
  • Mburhamasi
  • Kithoma
  • Kitswamba
  • Kyabarungira
  • Mithimusamju
  • Rwesande
