In March 2018 Global BrightLight and its partner Amigos de la Aldea traveled to the remote village of Chupel in the northern part of central Guatemala. Chupel is a village that Global BrightLight had visited previously, however, on each of our trips we discovered more people without access to electricity in the surrounding areas. The goal of this project was to finally provide every family in the community with clean, sustainable solar power. Joining us on the trip were a group of high school students from Colegio Maya in Guatemala City who helped fundraise for the project. We are happy to report that 100 more families now have solar lanterns that will help them save money, create safer homes, and allow children to study more at night. In addition, Amigos de la Aldea installed solar systems in two classrooms and held a vision clinic to distribute quality, affordable reading glasses to members of the community.
