PFP visited Doro Camp with HART in January 2018. We met Camp Leaders and representatives of the Maban District Commissioners Office. Camp leaders were keen to engage with any support that helps increase household incomes or improve education and health. Lack of electricity is a key issue for work, healthcare and education. Access to light and power for charging devices such as mobile phones and tablets, opens up opportunities for business start-ups, extended working on the land, evening study, light and power for health practitioners and midwives, access to mobile communication and internet, and improved security.

This Project will provide Solar Lighting and Power Units (LDBs) and e-readers, to Doro Camp and the Maban host community, under direction of the Maban District Commissioners Office.

Our aims

Enable access to education materials, and facilitate evening study, in Doro IDP camp and the host community by providing light, power and pre-loaded e- readers to teachers.


Support new and existing initiatives in Doro IDP Camp like business start-ups, the Women’s Centre etc

Light & power

Foster better understanding, communication and co-operation between IDPs and the host community through the IDPs supporting their host community with lighting and e-readers.
