It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness.
But helping to make solar power available to people without access to electricity is really and truly awesome.
I’m proud to support my friend Pam Ulicny’s great Indiegogo solar power project:
We are seeking to raise $10,000 to start a pilot program that will train and employ local youth to install, distribute and maintain home solar energy/lighting systems for people in rural villages and towns in South Africa without access to consistent, reliable, and renewable power. The money raised, after expenses, will pay for 50 solar lighting systems to begin this project.
We know, if we teach people how to build and use solar solutions for their energy needs their lives and their communities will be changed for years to come.
We know, replacing kerosene as a primary fuel source with solar energy solutions will bring improvement to the health and well-being of women, children and communities.
We are committed to creating long term solutions to the energy and economic needs of energy impoverished communities in South Africa and other developing countries.
SUNDANCE SOLAR has partnered with Educo Africa and ASPIRE Youth, two local non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Working together, we will provide the equipment, business & technical training and mentoring necessary to educate people in urban and rural areas on the health and economic benefits of the use of solar energy.
We know supplying homes with solar energy systems and training and mentoring the youth contributes to improving the health and standard of living of families and their communities.We know every act of kindness and empowerment inspires another.
We know, others need your help and support.
We know working together we can make a difference.
