shsid-news-2During P&B class on 6 March, Grade 4 students of Shanghai High School International Division (SHSID) had a guest from Solmates, a new fund-raising initiative launched in Singapore. She introduced a meaningful program that assisted the students in learning about solar energy, energy poverty, the effects that Nepal’s recent earthquakes had on Nepalese children, and generally how our students can make a positive impact on another child’s life.

In order to help the children in struggling Nepalese villages, the Grade 4 students will make lights named ‘Solmates’. A Solmate is a small but powerful portable solar light that is distributed through charities and NGOs to energy poor areas and villages that live off the grid. The lights assist the children and their families to study at night, use amenities in the dark, and lead a healthier life, since they will no longer need to use kerosene. It is a small but powerful life-changing device for village children.

The fourth Graders are looking forward to making their lights. Through the process they have come to realize that they can make a difference, no matter how small or big, to another child’s life.
