How to bring light in someones life
When people travel in Uganda they often want to contribute in some way to the people they meet during their tour. Matoke Tours is often requested to give some advice. We came across a great initiative that we would like to promote; Barefoot Power developed a small light that works on solar; the Firefly. The goal is to provide affordable, clean and safe solar lighting and phone charging systems to the people of the bottom of the global economic pyramid.
You can order the Firefly(s) through Matoke Tours for only 25 us dollar. Please order the Firefly(s) on your bookingsform or by email. We will make sure your guide will give it to you on the first day of your tour, so you make someone happy at any stage of your tour!
