    SOLARBUDDY PROJECT

    SolarBuddy is an Australian registered charity. Their goal is to end the devastating cycle of energy poverty for marginalised communities across the world. They aim to achieve this by educating Australian children about energy poverty, renewable energy and global citizenship.

    By working through service organisations such as Rotary to identify local primary schools, 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.

    Kenmore Rotary has taken up the challenge in the west of Brisbane to find local schools who would like to get involved in  educational programs about energy deficiency in overseas countries, and the benefits of solar.
