Solar Buddy, an organisation launched in Australia, now has a NZ co-ordinator, Kate Rowland.
Their Buddy2Buddy scheme provides solar lights to children in the developing world from children in NZ.
‘It starts with one small light, given from one child to another”.
Two schools, Kingsview and Remarkables Primary, from Frankton, near Queenstown, are the first two NZ schools to take part in this programme and FOP has been blessed to be the recipient of their support.
97 children attending our Rwenjaza Hillside School recently received their solar buddy lights. What a difference this will make when it comes time for evening chores, doing homework or even when visiting the toilet, which is often outside in the banana plantation.
