Sonlig aims to reduce the impact of energy poverty on education and provide options for employability for youth in areas where rural electrification is a significant barrier to accessing 21st century technology tools. Every child deserves light, however . . .
The Curriculum allows learners to investigate and ask questions about global energy issues and PV systems.
The Solar Charger recharges mobile learning devices in locations that may not have access to electricity.
Sonlig is a small group of concerned educators that believe all learners have the right to access technology and information. Sonlig recognized the need for low cost, mobile charging solutions that included an electric light for learners with limited access to electricity. We have designed a science kit and curriculum that includes such a device and are addressing this issue for learners participating in the M-Ubuntu mobile learning initiative in South Africa.
