Electricity For a School in Need
Organized by: Lisa Kilmer
Ilumexico is an organization that provides electricity through solar energy to schools, clinics and households across Mexico. Currently, 1 out of 10 of all schools in Mexico do not have electricity. A school which services 15 students in the Barranca Espino community, one of the poorest municipalities in Mexico, is a part of that demographic. Fairview Leads to Change, a school club that campaigns for charitable causes every year, is working to change that. By raising 5000 dollars, Ilumexico can give these students lighting at any time of the day as well as clean, running water. Ilumexico works with the community to ensure all equipment is regularly maintained and replaced if necessary, which allows for the impact of the action to have a stronger effect that can last for generations more. Currently, we are halfway towards our goal of 5000 dollars and with the help of Fairview's parents and the Boulder community, are hopeful that we can reach our goal within the deadline. Thank you for all donations as they are greatly appreciated!
