Cross curriculum priority of sustainability and digital technologies
Aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
Participants in our program learn about energy poverty and it limitations, the science of renewable energy, and how a simple solution - like a solar light - can make a difference to the educational outcomes of children living in the developing world.
Our program empowers students to embrace affordable, reliable and sustainable solar energy solutions to help transform lives, economies and the planet.
The gift of a SolarBuddy solar light improves the lives of children living in energy poverty.
HOW CAN YOU BEGIN
Signing up for the program is really easy! Sign up for the School Program, making sure to complete all the information required. The minimum order is 25 lights at $30 per light. Payment will be taken online and we accept Visa/Mastercard or Paypal. Once we have received payment we will send you a confirmation. As SolarBuddy is a registered charity your contribution is tax deductable.
An order confirmation will be emailed to you along with an information pack outlining when you should expect to receive your lights, a resource pack and instructions on how to have them collected once you have completed your program.
An email will be sent to you once your SolarBuddy lights have left our warehouse and you will be able to track your lights so you know when to expect them. If you require a priority order, please contact us directly and we will try our best to accommodate your needs. We recommend ordering your lights 4 weeks before you would like to run your school program.
When you have completed the School Program and your lights are ready for collection please fill out the Request Collection Form and we will arrange a courier to pick them up.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR LIGHTS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED TO A DEVELOPING COUNTRY?
After we have delivered the SolarBuddy lights made by your school/class we will send a report with images of the children receiving the lights and the personal letter’s your students have written and information about the area the lights were delivered to.
We look forward to helping you illuminate children’s lives. If you have any other enquiries please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
