Solar Energy for Resilience

By Lloyd | Program Volunteer

Happy July Supporters of Nepal! 

Firstly don't forget July 10th is Bonus Day! All donations of $100 and more to our project will be matched by the amazing GlobalGiving!!!

In the heart of Nepal, where rugged mountains meet lush valleys, lies a project that harnesses the power of the sun to transform lives. This initiative focuses on remote rural communities, aiming to enhance their resilience through solar energy. Let’s explore how solar solutions are making a difference in Surkhet District. We are so grateful for your donations to our program and we are really excited to hear that a project in South Africa and Zimbabwe recently focused on improving their community through renewable energy and solar and the results have left us as a community excited and feeling that our future should also be focused on solar. Most of your donations to date have really helped our community survive day to day and yes we still need this help but we are committed to fundraising more than the basics moving forward so that we can start saving to trial solar in our community and really making a sustainable difference for our community and wider planet. 

The Challenges we face are Vulnerability and Isolation which include: 

1. Health and Safety: Remote communities face challenges related to health, sanitation, and disaster preparedness. Floods, a common occurrence, threaten lives and livelihoods.

2. Energy Dependence: Many villages rely on traditional energy sources, which are often unreliable and expensive. Going off the grid seems like a distant dream.


Therefore as a community we do feel the solution of solar energy in our community would be life changing because: 

1. Solar panels provide a lifeline. They generate clean, renewable energy, reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

2. Access to electricity means better healthcare facilities, refrigeration for vaccines, and improved sanitation.

3. : Solar-powered lights and communication systems enhance safety during floods.

4. By going solar, communities become self-reliant. Affordable energy means more resources for education, livelihoods, and development.


As the sun rises over Surkhet, it illuminates hope. Solar energy isn’t just about watts and panels; it’s about resilience, health, and empowerment. Together, we’re turning isolated communities into beacons of sustainability.

Remember, every ray of sunlight brings us closer to a brighter future.

Thank You for Your Incredible Support!
