BENEFITING: EMPOWERED BY LIGHT FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2012

Empowered By Light

THE STORY:

When the students of Sioma High School go to school, they do so without the benefit of clean, dependable electricity. Because the school is too remote to connect to a public utility grid, it is at the mercy of rising diesel prices, unpredictable diesel deliveries and the noisy, polluting side efffects of diesel power.

Empowered by Light, with the help of partners and donors like you, will give the students of Sioma High School in rural Zambia something they could never achieve otherwise: a source of clean, renewable and uninterrupted power. For these children, power is knowledge.

Once we raise sufficient funds, our organization will install a ground-mounted solar panel and battery storage system on the campus of Sioma High School. We anticipate the system will pay for itself within six years.

Although this first project will be donor funded, our plan long-term is to create a sustainable model whereby Zambian schools can enjoy clean, renewable energy and save money on their energy bills, while providing a return on investment to funders of similar projects. 

Empowered by Light has already distributed thousands of solar lighting kits to schools in western Zambia, and we see the Sioma Project as the next phase in our efforts to bring light to those left in darkness. 

This is just the start, but we need your help to prove to transform Africa's energy future. 

Join us at empoweredbylight.org for more information.

Thanks for your support!
