Project Details

The introduction of solar energy has a significant impact on the quality of life in impoverished communities. Access to a clean, dependable light source in the hours of darkness results in improvements in security, education, business, and health. When solar lights are introduced as part of a comprehensive effort to foster self-reliance on the family level, that impact is magnified and community resilience is enhanced.
 
ALV works with communities in developing nations to identify development priorities and the ways on which solar energy can best be utilized to address those priorities. To that end it seeks to raise self-reliant owners of local communities supported by international donors motivated by the same vision.
