Give families in rural Fiji the gift of efficient, reliable, solar lights for evening school work and activities

Main image

The Solar Project is an initiative founded by St Cuthbert's Year 13 students Hannah Went and Amber Waymouth that aims to provide rural Fijian villages with solar lights.

The need for electricity in rural Fijian communities has never been greater. Recent events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and recurring tropical cyclones have devastated many communities in Fiji, meaning that people living in rural areas don’t have access to light after the sun sets or are forced to rely on expensive, carcinogenic kerosene lamps. The impact on children is particularly damaging, as their ability to do schoolwork is severely limited by their lack of access to light.

The Solar Project has a baseline goal of sending 1000 lights to remote villages in Fiji to give families an efficient, reliable, light source for evening school work and activities.

Our everyday actions make a difference in the world we live in. We must act now - your help will increase the economic opportunities and standard of living for those living in remote Fijian villages who do not have access to reliable sources of light.

Please make a difference by donating using the 'Give now' button. Every dollar helps, just $5 provides a solar light to a family in need.

About us

St Cuthbert's College is a private day and boarding school for girls, located in Epsom, Auckland, New Zealand.

Use of funds

All funds raised will be used to cover the cost of purchasing solar lights for families in Fiji along with the cost of transportation. The more money we raise, the more lights we'll send to Fiji and the more families you'll help!
