“The electricity really helps us to prepare for lessons and mark assignments at night.
We no longer suffer eye problems like we did with kerosene lamps.”

“Delivering babies during the night is now much safer.
Before the electricity we often risked deliveries by candle light or delayed until daybreak.”
