9 years-old Nadia Kampimbare is wearing the solar lamp that her family bought through the "projet Lumière" implemented through a solidarity group on the hill where she lives, Nonge, in Burundi's southern Makamba province.  Nadia uses it to learn her school lessons, at night, to help her mother with her little sisters. She also says she is no longer scared of going to the bathroom (which is outside her house) at night.
