Targeting Girl children studying in class 6 - 12
The reason for targeting girls studying in 6 - 12 grades is the fact that this is the age in which they can communicate and influence the use of the light provided to them and also utilize the facility by replacing the batteries on a monthly basis.
This is also the stage in girl children’s lives when they are more burdened with their domestic duties and need the lighting resource to choose to study in their free time. The fact that their need to study at any time in the evening or night is given importance acts as a great enabler. They can take decisions on when they want to use it and how.
