An NGO has been moved to donate a set of solar lamps to three school children who defied a black-out yesterday to do their homework outdoors - on the stairs of SG-SSB bank's Faanofa Street branch in Accra.
Executive Secretary of "Light A Million Lives", Mel Kwesi Davis told Joy News Michaela Anderson, that after reading the story on myjoyonline.com Tuesday morning, he felt moved by the determination of the kids to study.
He believes that, it is the society's responsibility to help children achieve whatever they set out to do.
The children are currently in school and will be given the solar lamps after the close of classes.
The front premises of SG-SSB Bank on the Faanofa Street in Kokomlemle, adjacent Joy FM, became the new desk and two bulbs outside the new light of three kids, one as young as nine years.
With notebooks sprawled on the floor, they buried their heads in academic work, ignoring the noise from the cluster of generators a few metres away.
With the donation, the children will now be able to study at night, knowing that while Government works to end a power crisis, Light A Million Lives has worked to give them the chance to finish their homework more comfortably using solar-powered lamps.
