Solar buddy. 100 solar lamps for 100 Solar Kids from East Sumba
We gave 100 solar lamps to 100 solar children, from one of the most rural areas of East Sumba in Indonesia.
Mbinudita village is one of the villages in eastern Sumba that does not yet have access to electricity. The accommodation still uses candles or lanterns to light up their nights.
All of the children living with their families, apart from the lack of electricity, live without access to water, medical care, or healthy food. The rate of people suffering from malnutrition here is very high, it is in the majority.
Why donate solar lights? Well, when night falls at 6:00 p.m. and you come home from school at 4:00 p.m., after sometimes having walked for more than two hours on stone and dirt paths to get home, study, and do your homework is no longer possible. It’s already nighttime!
Fair Future and Kawan Baik Indonesia distributed 100 solar lights to 100 children in East Sumba, living in the MbinuDita region, where we are very active. These children live in one of the poorest regions of Indonesia, if not Southeast Asia. This is where we have been very active for years now.
A solar and solidarity action involving our teams on site, those of Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia, the teachers of our school on site. It was magical to see the children studying, by the light of their new solar lamp, opening their notebooks, a book, reading, and being able to write.
