Women make lamps using a plastic soft drinks bottle filled with water and a few drops of bleach and fitted with a metal reflector. They then make a hole in the tin roof of their homes and fit the bottle so the neck remains outside. The sun's rays diffract in the bottle, illuminating the room. During the most intense hours of sunshine, the bottle gives a power equivalent to 60 watts but, of course, the lighting only works during the day.
