Switched On-Gambia is a charity which helps communities acquire affordable, solar powered, sustainable lighting in rural areas of The Gambia, West Africa. As the smallest country on the continent, and one of the poorest, many families in The Gambia rely on candles as their light source. Switched On-Gambia provides a scheme of renting to buy solar lamps, which are distributed through solar libraries set up in schools... Switched On-Gambia have a partnership with Book Aid International, 'UK's leading international book donation and library development charity.' Switched On-Gambia is working in collaboration with Book Aid International to support schools in Central River Region of The Gambia. Schools working effectively on the solar library project have been invited to use Book Boxes to support reading by combining access to light and access to books. Book Boxes are made by a local carpenter which gives employment. A selection of books are put in each box including reference and fiction..
