Solar Buddies
Solar Buddy is a registered International charity based in Brisbane and they contact service organisations like Rotary to connect local schools with other children and families throughout the world who live in energy poverty. This is their Buddy2Buddy program with starts with one small light given from one child here to another living without electricity, and our schools have chosen PNG students ro receive their lights.
This program teaches students about solar technology, how the solar cells interact with the rechargeable batteries and the LED lights through the PCB circuits and how such lights can change lives where homes do not have mains electricity. Only 20% of the whole PNG populations access to regular electricity, mostly in larger towns, but in rural areas, it is only 6%. These small remote communities would only have smoky kerosene or expensive disposable battery lighting at night, so health, cost and safety issues limit children being able to read or do homework at night
