Voices of Khalte – Nepal


For the past three years, we have been working to bring about a better understanding of energy needs of displaced populations with internally displaced communities in Khalte, Nepal. In December 2018, we commissioned the humanitarian photographer Edoardo Santangelo, to video document the impact of the HEED energy interventions on everyday lives. As Khalte residents engage with HEED energy interventions, these videos capture different stages of the project to become stories of change.

About the video

Working with the community, HEED installed renewable solar energy multi-function street lighting. These systems were produced so that the interventions could potentially respond to the future needs and aspirations of refugees as well as current demands. By encouraging practices that see greater equity, autonomy and dignity for refugee communities, HEED’s interventions are transformative for some of the residents in the camp.
