Solar Lighting Products Can Add More Local Jobs

Not many know that THRIVE Solar Energy offers factory kits, or assembly units, that allow locals to manufacture and sell for-profit their own solar lighting products. Rather than solely relying on the import-export trade of its solar lights, THRIVE has created a business model that truly abides by its socially responsible value for employing first-timers into the workforce, especially women in the developing world. This allows for solar products that can carry the label, “Made in Kenya” or “Made in Ghana.”

Free Source Code - the Story

 

Today, code is essential for many areas within a corporation.  Naturally, its source code is available also. Download The source code could be downloaded from the next link.  The absolutely free source code can be found in the sector and users can customize the code based on the requirements.

 

Free source code source software differs.  Though some open source software might be at no charge, skill in programming and troubleshooting open source software can be very valuable.  A lot of people prefer open source software since they have more control over that type of software.

Wizessay has found that 2 million potential new jobs could be created because of the demand and need for solar lights in the developing world. These jobs range from designing and manufacturing to marketing and distribution.

THRIVE Solar Lights are on the way to Ecuador

indiegogo page

A donation of about 300 THRIVE Solar Lights is on the way to Ecuador today. Ecuador was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in mid-April, and many earthquake survivors are still recovering from the shock.

The objective of the solar light donation is to ensure that families who have been displaced from their homes and are living without electricity receive a safe renewable energy device for their lighting needs.

The alternative without the solar lights would be toxic smoking kerosene lamps or hazardous and accident-prone candles.

A crowdfunding site has been set up to help deliver the solar lights to the rural communities of coastal Ecuador. The solar light distribution is being led by a small group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers from the San Francisco Bay Area. One of the volunteers, who did his Peace Corps service in the coastal communities, will personally deliver the solar lights and help support the relief supply convoys back and forth from the relief stations outside of Quito.

Call for donations for Syrian refugees

We are strangers
I don’t know who you are
But please stay strong
Politics have failed you
But people will save you
We all sleep under the same sky

Note for refugees_778x436

CAS is donating these solar lights to RAIN International, who will conduct a trip to the the refugee camps in Eastern Europe at the end of the month.

One of their destination will be the island of Lesvos where upwards of 2000 people are still landing daily despite extremely dangerous weather conditions. According to reports, a two-year old boy was the first refugee in 2016 to lose his life attempting to cross the Mediterranean. Others are suffering from hypothermia on account of shortage of shelters.

If you would like to donate to their upcoming trip, please visit the RAIN International Facebook page
