  • Schneider Electric @ Rays of Hope in Alexandra

    We designed a new concept solar charging station from repurposed wood pallets and donated a couple of these together with Mobiya solar lamps to Rays of Hope, for the benefit of disadvantaged children in Alexandra.  Now these children have access to green and safe lighting, opposed to candles and paraffin lamps, and it enabled them to study with ease at night, with the additional benefit of cell phone charging.
