Bach, Switzerland (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
The Prospero Foundation, founded by Ulrik DeBo of DeBondo Capital, is proud to announce that a donation has been made to contribute towards the cost of 1,700 solar powered lamps in rural areas of the Sundarbans in India.
Most of this region does not have electricity, which affects whole communities in many ways of course. Although a World Heritage Site, poverty and lack of amenities can impact the mental development of children who cannot study once the sun goes down. Kerosene lamps are dangerous and costly, and so this project was devised to provide a thousand students with solar lamps to take home, and give seven hundred students access to common lighted spaces for group study.
The Prospero Foundation’s aim is to help students invest in their own future, and feel a sense of pride in their own education. By allowing them this opportunity, they will see the benefit of further study, and be able to lift themselves out of the future cycle of poverty with higher education and employment.
