Suzy commented on Training First Responders for Natural Disasters

I think this idea has a lot of merit. Empowering people with knowledge and being as prepared as possible from the bottom up can only be a good thing I think.


Suzy commented on Survival Girls

I am genuinely curious as to the reason behind the research of why women and girls die in higher numbers than men and boys. You mention social and cultural factors. Is a main reason a difference in physical strength or confidence?

This is a great idea. In fact, I'm currently doing a University course on innovation where I learnt about a similar project for solar panel lamps in Indian slums. I thought the idea had a lot of merit. They also discussed small loans for people in order to finance the lamps. Do you have an idea of how many hours the lamp will last for?
