PROVIDING LIGHT AND POWER TO THOSE IN NEED
We are pleased to share the following social good projects, accomplished through our caring non-profit partners, and funded through HELIO purchases:
- Providing 100 portable solar lights to their "Rape Hurts” program which will supply them to girls and women in Uganda to help keep them safe on their daily walking routes.
- Providing 100 solar lights to their "Rural Elderly Care" program which will allow grandparents in Uganda to better care for their grandchildren, orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic.
- Providing 100 HELIO lights to students without access to electricity, to improve their studying ability after dark and to help them achieve a better education.
Providing the entire village of El Porvenir, in Guatemala, with clean and sustainable solar power.
El Porvenir lies about 60 miles away from the nearest city with electricity. Their residents are mostly farmers, growing the spice cardamon. These 50 families are of the Kekchi indigenous group and speak a unique language that traces its roots to the ancient Mayans.

Providing a complete infrastructure installation of solar light and power to a large nonprofit hub in Tanzania. This installation will supply much needed electricity to 16 individual nonprofits, all housed and working together to combat poverty and infant mortality, and to increase women's health, student education, nutrition levels, and more, for the greater local communities.
