SolarBuddy connects Australian school communities who want to make a difference with other children and communities in areas throughout the world that live in energy poverty.
Purchasing and building a SolarBuddy light at school teaches Australian school children about the positive impact of renewable energy on communities living in energy poverty. Sending that light to another country, along with a personal letter, can make a dramatic and positive difference to the life of a child in need.
Our aim is to involve every Australian school in the Buddy2Buddy program on an ongoing basis. Continuing to give the gift of light to others will help end energy poverty, one community at a time.
Schools across Australia have already sent SolarBuddy lights to communities in India, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Tibet, Thailand, Myanmar, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea, greatly improving the lives of thousands of children.
