There are a number of places in Sri Lanka, including entire villages, where electricity isn’t a cost issue, but actually an infrastructure issue. A new partnership with U.S.-based nonprofit First Light will not only supply electricity for the orphanage’s use, but it will provide Grace girls with an opportunity to train for a future in solar power.

First Light is dedicated to bringing reliable, renewable energy to communities in need around the globe. Working together, the girls will learn how energy is made, about energy conservation, and how to install small solar arrays.
