Unleash the power of light and technology to change a child's future! Accelerate Omar Dengo Foundation plans to install at least one photovoltaic system to provide electricity, computer equipment, and learning proposals on educational informatics to 30 children, their teachers, and family members. Be part of this awesome opportunity and help us boost education in the indigenous community of Altos Guaymi, Golfito, Costa Rica.
As Costa Rica and its educational system tackle the Covid-19 pandemic, indigenous communities are still one of the most vulnerable populations. There are still 65 indigenous schools in Costa Rica without electricity, limiting their access to learning opportunities. At the Omar Dengo Foundation, we believe that investing in a solar energy solution, is a commitment towards a decisive impact on these communities: an opportunity for Costa Rican indigenous children to grow with equal opportunities.
To bright up educational opportunities for 30 indigenous children in Costa Rica we will Assess the need for solar energy capacity, design the solution, make all necessary electrical improvements and install a photovoltaic system to provide electricity to the school. Once the solar panels are providing power, we will provide computer equipment and educational informatics learning proposal to all students and teachers.
The project will directly benefit 30 indigenous students, 2 teachers and about 120 parents and siblings enhancing the quality of education and providing their school and community with access to electrical power through solar panels. The school would also serve as charging station, emergency shelter and access point to clean energy for the whole community.
