Can anyone help Mohamed-related to energy question?

I am a 3rd year engineer and I am working with a team to create a portable energy device to charge laptops for school children in remote off-grid nepali students. The laptops were donated by NGOs but the villagers have no way of charging them. We are reaching out to charities and other experts who work in similar situations so we can tailor our device to some of their needs as well. Our project is still in the brainstorming phase so any input will help make the final product more useful and will be greatly appreciated. What are the energy needs? What is the energy used for? What are the current sources of power used or current solutions? Do you think small scale power generation can be useful?

For example, small battery charging devices that are powered by an ox while the ox is ploughing the land, or battery charging shoes using piezoelectric, or using the pit fires that villagers typically make to charge small batteries throughout the day. Do you think these kind of devices are helpful for charities in bringing power to off grid communities? During this brainstorming phase, we are considering microhydro power systems, rain energy, wind, solar, or even somehow using wood fire or coals.
