In an interview with The Point newspaper, the president of the association said the solar lights, made in Germany, can serve for sixteen hours.
Ousman Bajor hailed ‘Dance two Learn’ for funding the solar lights, and Global Energy for paying the transport of solar lights to The Gambia.
Mr Bajor promised that the association would do all it can and within its means to contribute to the development of Gunjur Kulukochi.
The public relations officer of the association, Lamin Jassey, said the community is “happy” that the aims of the association are being actualised.

Jo from the Gunjur Project has sent us this short but encouraging update!
"Volunteers working at Kullukochi school.
in return they were given the opportunity to buy a Wakawaka light
As you can see - a very good turn out!"
A certain number of lights were being sold (at a near 90% discount) to people offering their time to volunteer at the projects, a scheme will soon be in place awarding a Wakawaka to the "volunteer of the Month" and others will be loaned to those in dire need due or emergency.
Moneys raised will be ploughed back into other sustainable projects, doubling the effect of the Bring Home the Light project.
We should all feel very proud at what we're achieving! I hope you all do. - Mei (co-director, Dance2Learn)
