SOLARKIOSK and the EKOCENTER project are thrilled to make our social impact easy and accessible, no matter the distance.

Lets take a look at Dom a small Ethiopian community wedged between rolling hills and a marvelous landscape. The small village sits 180km Southwest of Addis Ababa and has approximately 5000 inhabitants and includes a primary school for 1180 children.

Unfortunately, many of children face a simple but real problem – access to a pen or pencil. To meet this challenge SOLARKIOSK setup small pen stations throughout Addis Ababa with a sticker: “Donate-A-Pen” Enable. Empower. Ethiopia

After a few days, 300 pens were donated and we decided to surprise the local school children by dropping them off. The show of support was immediate and the children were elated!

SOLARKIOSK understands that this is a useful step in creating impact at the base-of-the pyramid but this is only the start. In the future, SOLARKIOSK aims to provide lighting to the school and offer laptops that can be charged.
