Post a Project
You post and award a project to a freelancer.
We count all our awarded projects for that month and make a monthly donation to our non-profit partners that help to get solar lights to remote rural communities, which enables a family and kids to have a clean source of light, providing better study time at night, hope and opportunity.
Sustainable Model for Charity
Our non-profit partners have created a truly sustainable model for charity by creating a social enterprise the sell lights via school networks and local enterprises. Thereby creating local entrepreneurs that encourage job creation and reinvestment back into their local economy.
But why sell them you ask? Well, in short, it allows money to be reinvested back into our non-profit partners work, encourages local entrepreneurship, job creation and ensures money stays in their local economy. Studies have shown this type of charity creates less dependency on the communities served since everyone is invested.
Also, by just not donating the solar lights, the social entrepreneurs trained by our non-profit partners can take the time to travel to remote rural communities, educate people about the benefits of solar, instill trust and build demand. Providing low cost solar lights to replace unhealthy and poor sources of light such as the one homemade kerosene lamps provide. A win-win for all.
