In many parts of rural Bolivia, students have not been to classes due to the pandemic, and won’t be able to return to schools for the rest of 2021.
Pidola is working with our local solar installation partner, Energetica, along with the Ministry of Education, establishing a program to provide remote learning kits to 1,000 rural households without electricity.
Each kit includes 3 solar-charged lamps with a USB charger and USB-powered radios; cost is $112 USD. Almost half is covered by our partners, but we need your help to fund the rest. Teachers will be broadcasting lessons via the radio and the Ministry of Education will be organizing scheduling and curriculum.
That means for only $65, a remote family with school-age kids will have access to classes and information.
The program for these kits includes user identification, signing of agreements with Municipalities, promotion in communities, and training to use the kits.
