Students in developing countries, and more than just the students, but rather entire populations, do not have access to the grid of energy. Because of this, when the sun goes down, it is usually lights out for the community. During the day, however, the people of these communities have their own duties to perform, such as collecting water from potentially far-away sources, tending to crops, and home chores to name a few. These activities usually can span the bulk of the day, in addition to schooling for the children. Because of this, the only optimal time for study would be during the night, except at this time there is no light which to study by.
