We teach those without electricity
how to create free energy from solar power.

SolarGoodWill.org is a Not for Profit* group that travels to and teaches remote villages in third world countries and Indian Reservations in the USA how to build solar panels and create their own electricity.

Brian Clark of Boulder, Colorado provides onsite training and free educational materials so that group leaders learn how to collect materials, build and maintain solar panels and in turn show other members of their community the same. This assures that this knowledge will be carried on for generations to come. We give the knowledge of solar power to change lives forever.

Current Trip:

 
 

Our next SolarGoodWill.org trip will be to Goroka, Papua New Guinea in Asia. The workshop runs from January 17th to the 28th, 2011.  Get more Details Here.

 



Previous Trips:

 
Nicaragua

Dates of Trip: October 2008
Status: Completed!

Brian Clark traveled to the town of Potogalpa in Nicaragua where for 3 months he trained how to create solar power for local schools. This provides electricity to the schools so children can meet and learn after the sun sets and provides power to learning devices such as TV’s and DVD players.

Our Mission:  

Most people take electricity for granted, but there are thousands of poor and remote villages around the world that either don’t have electricity or only have a very limited supply of it. By providing safe and clean solar panel power, we are giving the poorest people in the world the power to change their lives forever.  

Many villages around the world use fire to heat & cook and dangerous kerosene lamps to provide light. Both fire and kerosene lamps are responsible for thousands of unnecessary deaths and injuries each year. By having the ability to build solar panels and create clean solar power families all around the world can live a safer and better quality of life.
In many remote villages, children must work during the day to provide food and shelter and so solar power often times provides the only source of light at the end of the day so that these children can learn in schools that can now stay open after the sun sets. Solar energy also helps provide power to radios and computers which give children with better education.
