DIAFA is an NGO focused on providing solutions which will make a significant difference in the lives and health of the very poor. It is a foundation created in the year 2005 by Dr Isaac Ayodele for the purpose of giving back to society that made him what he is today. Dr Isaac Ayodele himself has passed through very difficult terrain in life and therefore has the opportunity to know how excruciating it is to live far below poverty line.
His philosophy is that those who have should give to those who don’t have adding that we can all give. Those who have plenty should give plenty. Those who have less should give little. If you give and I give the world will be better for all of us saying that there is enough to go round everybody all over. The problem is that resources are not well distributed. So, DIAFA is seeking to as much as possible take from the rich and give to the poor for a better tomorrow.
For a start we have identified low wattage SOLAR system and SOLAR SYSTEM IN KVA, HIGH POWER ENERGY SAVING BULBS THAT CAN LAST UP TO 50,000 HOURS and SOLAR BASED LED LIGHTING SYSTEM as part of the main means of improving life in rural communities and among the low income earners which either get intermittent electricity or no electricity at all. Solar panel provided charges the battery during daylight hours. The power stored in the battery runs the LED lamp throughout the night. In addition to all that DIAFA ensures that solar energy is provided for village and urban population with no electricity or with intermittent electricity.
This simple solution makes a dramatic difference in the lives of many:
- Women folk, who have to cook food at night and take care of small children, often in darkness don’t have to do so any more.
- Young students now have availability of light provided for them to study at home in evening hours.
- Men can continue their work in evening like running their shops, tailoring, watering of fields and hair salons. This also results in stoppage of the practice of using kerosene lamps and candles which are a great safety hazard.
