This is the third recipient of a solar panel light.
As two of his six children look on, this father learns how to use his new solar light.
In the lower right hand corner you can also see the bamboo skewers being help up by the mother in my previous post. The previous recipients were so excited to teach the new recipients how they could make money at night and save additional money on kerosene.
The father cried as he told us that on the day we had arrived, no one in the family had eaten because they had no money. The patents put salt in a bowl with water and allowed the children to dip their fingers into the bowl so they could eat and taste something for the day.
This was one of the most heart breaking stories I have ever heard in my life. When I hugged him good-bye, I could feel every rib bone beneath his Quaker Oats tee-shirt.
