Nokero (NO-KEROsene) supplies affordable solar lighting that replace kerosene lamps and candles. Nokero lights charge by day and bring light by night. Today 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity, 1 million people killed yearly by kerosene fires, and $3.8 billion (U.S.) is spent on kerosene annually.
Replacing kerosene with affordable solar lighting changes lives in many ways:
- Increases a child’s study time by 50%
- Adds 3 or more hours of increased income productivity per day
- Eliminates harmful exposure to kerosene pollution and risk of fire
Nokero products are affordable and reliable. The cost of N233 product is the equivalent of the monthly fuel expenses for a family of four. Nokero has provided solar lighting solution in over 120 countries. Nokero is seeking reliable distributors of their products. Investment funds provide start-up capital to purchase inventory for new distributors. Charitable donation are also accepted. Working with partners around the globe such as Project C.U.R.E. a donation of as little as $10 provides a light to someone in need.
