How do you become a SolarBuddy?
- 4 EASY STEPS -
Fundraise $25 - $30 per participant to receive the SolarBuddy solar light assembly kit and education pack.
Participants learn about energy poverty and how a solar light can change a life. They write a personal letter to their ‘buddy’, which is sent together with the light.
Participants learn about solar technology, how energy can be created from the sun, and how to assemble their SolarBuddy light.
SolarBuddy collects the lights and distributes them to students in communities living in energy poverty. Participants often receive photos and letters back from their ‘buddy’.
