Crowdfunding: Solar panels for Sumba (Indonesia)
Crowdfunding for Sumba, Indonesia.
This Dutch guy started a crowdfunding campaign to gain awareness and raise money for a project called Expeditie Sumba (Expedition Sumba) in cooperation with Hivos. The goal is to supply a elementary school with solar panels since big parts of this island don’t have access to electricity. This is all part of a bigger plan, in 2023 the island Sumba should be completely covered with sustainable energy solutions.
