Some projects we support

BuildOn Solar Learning Centres

The ClimatePositive-buildOn partnership is a passion project for both organizations, cooperating to create truly impactful change.

It brings solar-powered technology to light up children’s schools, making them available for evening adult literacy programs. These programs not only promote literacy but also empower business and work through a variety of other activities, including reforestation, irrigation, crop and livestock management and beekeeping. All of which provides food for school children, meaning more of them stay in class and remain healthy. 

Project Benefits
  • Replace CO2 and particulate matter with clean solar energy

  • Provide new sources of energy to the local community

  • Restore biodiversity to local lands

  • Provide education and economic empowerment

  • Increase food security throughout sponsorship regions
