Bringing light to the worldthrough free renewable energy
The issue in question
In many areas in the highlands of Guatemala, there is often no source of hydro or it is is unreliable especially in the evening due to increased demand. Students cannot study adequately after dark as they do not have a good source of light. They use candles, kerosene or pine torches which are not very bright, cost money and not healthy as far as the fumes they give off.
We are supplying solar lanterns to households as a donation. The light will help students study and provide light to provide opportunities to work after the sun sets.
In 2018 we were able to supply 170+ Solar lanterns through donations. Each light was delivered to a student and its operation was explained to the child and family.

Solar systems for families
We are also getting some small solar kits that will include a solar panel, a charger, 3 lights, and cell phone charger which will be sufficient to light a small shack without cost.
The solar kits will help family light their “shacks” so they can be more productive after sunset which is just after 6 pm all year round.
