Mayan girls examining solar panels
Here are some photographs and a new video from our recent trip to Guatemala! These are some of the young women that are planning to learn solar and circuits from our course and from there, build their own solar cooperative, providing steady employment for them and income for their families.
I want to mention one particular point about the video. If you watch closely, you will see the girls smiling as they climb the ladder to the roof where our solar panels are installed. For all of them, this is the VERY FIRST time they have done this! Yet their dream is so compelling, that they are challenging themselves to broaden their experiences and learn new skills.
I hope the glimpse of our girls taking their first steps towards their dream of a solar cooperative inspires you to help us make it become real, to give them the skills they desire to fulfill their hopes and make their dreams come true.
Two of our excited students!
