Ruth (CEO) encounters a delighted village resident in Butambala – Mpigi district during the solar lamp distribution – Lighting Africa project and she was impressed with the testimony of this man.
“My dialogue with this resident inspired me as I walked away laughing.”
Man: Madam, how are you? One village resident greeted me with a very big smile and remarked that ‘Let JEEP live for a hundred years’
Man: ‘With a solar lamp, I’m like a king’
Ruth: Why is this so I inquired further?
Man: ‘because I no longer ask money for paraffin’
Ruth: Doesn’t a king also need it?
Man: Who could ask for it, the queen or who? I would like you to know that I got rid of kerosene lamps (tadobas) we have been using at home for lighting!
