Signify Foundation improved the life of Longhu Village residents with solar lighting
“As soon as the sun goes down, these streetlights take over and continue lighting common spaces in this little village. Roads outside our homes are beautifully lit, and the lights from afar form a shape like a flying dragon!”, shared Mr. Peng, the first villager we met during our visit.
The name Longhu Village, situated in Guzhang County, Hunan province in China, literally translates to ‘Dragon Lake’ village. It’s one of the most underdeveloped areas in the country. With the nightfall in the past, barely anyone would venture out of their home.
