Help support the 'President's Village' Children's home in the Seychelles and help improve the lives children who do not have a permanent home of their own.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
President's Village Children's Home cares for children who are orphans or with parents that are not able to look after them for various reasons. Some have been neglected/abused while others have disabilities or learning difficulties. All are in need of care and the home provides a safe environment for them. It is home to approx 60 children, ages 6 months to 18 years. With limited funding, the home struggles with the ongoing maintenance and spends a large sum of money each month on utility bills.
How will this project solve this problem?
In addition to funding extra-curricular activities for the children, the majority of funds will be used to purchase, install and maintain a solar energy system. The renewable energy project for the President's Village will have multiple phases in the coming years and the ultimate goal is to have the President's Village running on solar power energy, reducing the cost of their utilities and to help conserve valuable resources on an island where all resources are precious.
Potential Long Term Impact
With the installation of 19 solar panels and equipment, we can help the President's Village save thousands of dollars each month, not only saving the President's Village money, but also teaching the next generation in the Seychelles about renewable energy and conservation, something that we are passionate about.
