Solar Power Lighting for the Poor (2016 campaign)
We aim to change lives of the less fortunate in Indonesia by providing rural communities with solar power lighting systems. Azzura Solar is in the business of changing lives in Indonesia.
Millions of families are left in the dark after nightfall because they do not have access to electricity, or a sustainable light source.
By providing these homes with solar power lighting we can enhance their lives, keep them safe and allow their children to read, write and study after dark.
A simple light can change a life.
With millions of Households living without access to electricity, families are left in the dark after the sun sets. Children are Unable to read, write and study after dark, making it difficult to keep up at school. around Indonesia develop properly?
Sometimes, it's the simplest things that can make a big difference in people's lives.
For many of us, all we need to do is flip a switch, and we've got a cheap source of light that does not pollute our home and that can provide plenty of time after dark to prepare meals, complete homework, read, enjoy our family or loved ones, or do our daily chores.
But that's not the case in many areas, where the only viable source of light may be an oil or petrol lamp, which is not only unhealthy to burn indoors, and a possible safety hazard, but also requires a constant supply of relatively expensive fuel to Operate.
With your help, we can provide these rural communities without any access to electricity, with a sustainable, solar powered, light source.
The positive effects of providing light to rural communities are:
1) Children can now read, write and study after dark without the need for harmful petroleum lamps that emit dangerous fumes, and can potential start a fire
2) Families experience a greater sense of safety. Many villages are plunged into darkness at night due to the lack of lighting. By providing a sustainable light source, we can help illuminate the surrounding areas, creating a sense of safety.
3) Increased overall productivity. Due to the lack of light, household productivity nears zero. Our solar power lighting can help homes continue their work activities well into the night.
How we make a difference?
We are so lucky to have the foundations in life to reach out goals and dreams, which many Indonesians do not. It is up to us to help the underprivileged who do not have the same upbringings. By giving just a small amount, we can start rebuilding communities throughout the country and supply
