In a world where environmental concerns have taken center stage, the need for clean and sustainable energy solutions have never been needed the most. In Colombia, a country known for its stunning natural landscapes and rich biodiversity, Expert Solar and the Give Power Foundation team up to bring clean energy to the community of Amuyuwou.
Expert Solar, a renowned solar energy company, has built a reputation for its modern take and reliable solar solutions, commits to environmental sustainability with an opportunity to make a meaningful impact in Colombia, where access to clean energy remains a challenge for many. Expert Solar joined forces with the Give Power Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clean energy and water to communities in need around the world.
Together, Expert Solar and Give Power Foundation implemented an ambitious project aimed at bringing clean energy to the community of Amuyuwou. By harnessing the power of solar energy, Expert Solar was deployed to provide reliable and sustainable electricity to families who previously had limited or no access to power. The positive ripple effects of this initiative have been profound, touching every aspect of these communities’ lives.
One of the most immediate benefits of Expert Solar’s solar panel project is the improved quality of life for the families. Access to electricity allows children to study in well-lit environments, enabling them to excel academically and pursue their dreams. Families can now engage in productive activities after sunset, which provides economic growth and empowerment within the community.
In addition to the impact of Expert Solar’s clean energy solutions the partnership with the Give Power Foundation, gave first-hand experience to team members Junik Jusufi and Eddie Meza on the remarkable journey and the profound impact it had the community.
Junik’s experience on the field was a mix of emotions and challenges. Initially, there was some confusion about the tasks at hand, but as the team began working, they encountered the harsh reality of the desert-like terrain with its tough soil. The absence of technology tools meant that everything had to be done manually, which posed additional challenges.
When the team finally reached the community, they were greeted with immense joy and gratitude, especially from the children. Even the simple act of providing toys and clothes had an impact on their lives, and Junik witnessed the happiness and appreciation radiating from them. It was a testament to how small gestures could bring about significant change and transform lives.
The resilience and warmth displayed by the community left a lasting impression on Junik. He observed that despite the challenging conditions they faced, the people he encountered were happier, more loving, and caring than many individuals in more privileged circumstances. Their main source of water relied heavily on rainfall, and if it didn’t rain for an extended period, they would run out of water for themselves and their livestock.
In the end, Junik expressed his happiness in being a part of Expert Solar and this transformative journey. Witnessing the positive change in the children’s lives and the potential for a brighter future for the community filled him with a sense of fulfillment. He firmly believed that with the newfound access to clean energy, education, and connectivity, the children would have the opportunity to thrive.
“It was awesome getting to experience this type of help on my own, amazing experience in Colombia” – Junik
Another team member, Eddie Meza, shares his perspective on the experience, further highlighting the unique aspects and the profound impact it had on both the community and himself.
Eddie Meza reflects on his initial uncertainty about what to expect. The team found themselves in the middle of a desert, disconnected from phone service and surrounded by the vastness of the landscape. The scorching heat made the conditions challenging, but on the other hand their arrival was met with a heartwarming gesture from the community. The locals welcomed them with drawings they had made and performed a special welcome ceremony, demonstrating their appreciation for Expert Solar’s presence.
The peak of their efforts came when the solar system was successfully connected and turned on. The sheer joy and gratitude expressed by the community were overwhelming.
Through the collaboration between Expert Solar, Give Power Foundation, and passionate team members like Eddie and Junik, communities in Colombia are being empowered, improving their quality of life, and creating a brighter future for generations to come.
“I enjoy Expert because they empowered me to give back more than I can imagine” – Eddie
