Candle Project

safer candle project

 

The safer candle project was researched and developed in 2005/2006 by Dorothy Schulman (Childsafe) following thousands of shack fires in informal settlements in Cape Town. Its aim is to reduce fires causing severe burns and often death in children and adults; and to reduce the destruction of homes and property especially in impoverished communities.

This is an ongoing project and since 2006, over six thousand safer candles have been distributed to local communities in South Africa.

A safer candle is a simple, cost effective innovation, and can be created using a large recycled glass jar, dry sand, and half candles.
