In November 2017, the Signify Ukraine team visited a special institution for visually impaired kindergarten students only to find that the classrooms were lit with incandescent lamps and tubes.
They understood that the inadequate lighting was a result of local government’s inability to prioritize lighting in educational institutions. So, for years, people had to navigate their way through dim light, posing a challenge for the students of the institutions. The Signify team decided to retrofit the classrooms’ lighting.
When the 160 students returned to their kindergarten on the very first day after their winter holiday, there was a big surprise waiting for them.
