The Abiola LichtPortal is an internet platform with the aim of donating as many solar systems as possible, also called solar kits for emergency relief projects and families. The development effort of the LichtPortal was great, the provision and maintenance of the data is an even greater challenge in the long run.
The whole concept is only possible through a network of many supporters from non-profit charities and associations, volunteers and donors.
Although Abiola has decided to donate a lot of SolarKits herself, external donations are also important in the long run. The LichtPortal is thus a donation portal where every donor knows exactly what he is making a donation for and for what he receives his donation receipt. Tip: Click on the pictures, then ESC or a click on the side of the image.
All registered projects and families are real and were registered by an AbiolaPartner. Abiola only takes projects and families into the light portal, which Abiola could donate to the well-thought-out SolarKit even without external donations.
However, the AbiolaPartner, who knows the project and supervises it, is responsible for the delivery and handover. Abiola hands over the SolarKits from one of its warehouses, currently either Deuschland or Togo.
The AbiolaPartners are required to clarify the consent to the publication of the names and images beforehand, so that they can be published permanently. Each beneficiary can also understand his or her own entry.
Ticket – Types
Each entry in the LightPortal is called a ticket. Abiola distinguishes between different types of tickets:
Projects – Donation: 350 €
Typical projects are medical aid stations, orphanages or women’s shelters, student dormitories, schools or the like. For all projects in the system, either an Abiola Turbo Charger 60W or the smaller Abiola Charger 30W is provided.
Family – Donation 35 €
Abiola does not donate to individual families, but only to families in family groups (e.g. an entire village) to avoid envy. All families of a group are then always supplied together. These families are to receive the SolarKit family. In principle, families are chosen who would not be financially able to buy a family SolarKit.
Projects with linking – Donation variable
(depending on scope)
Example 1 – Village

Multiple images per ticket possible
For many projects and families, several pictures of the ticket have been posted. By clicking on the small pictures at the bottom or by the arrow keys on the right and left part of the image, the other pictures can be viewed.
Here it is easy to see that there is no power supply available there.
In the medium term, the menu navigation is designed in such a way that it can also be used with English skills. The description texts can be read in German, English and French. Note: We do not commission interpreters for translation work. These are typically run with a translator program. Accordingly, errors in content or errors are possible.

Picture Gallery – Presentation
Already at the publication of the Abiola LichtPortal about 350 different pictures of projects and families were in the lightportal. It would be too tedious for a visitor from the portal to load and browse all tickets individually.
For this reason, the LichtPortal has the possibility of an image representation in the form of a gallery. Here the visitor has the same search possibilities as with the ticket presentation, but only sees the pictures. Here you can see how people live and how little they have.
By clicking on an image (or the ID number) you get to the corresponding ticket. Here can donate diswell.
