Basically, Abiola does not donate to individual families, but only to family communities, small villages or projects with families, also called family projects. All families of an action project are delivered together after the collection period *. Each donation is unique and is used to “turn on a light” for the selected family.
Abiola will donate the corresponding SolarKit to all families for which no donation could be collected during the promotional period. All SolarKits will be delivered in the next quarter. The donation is carried out in the Abiola LichtPortal.

With exceptions, the promotional period may be extended by one quarter.

Why supply all families together?
Gifting individual families could be envy. We want to avoid this

Why only selected projects / villages?
Transport is the most difficult part of the action. Abiola checks when an aid container goes to a country where the solar kits can be sent for little money. If in this country a “project with families” is registered in the LightPortal, then Abiola plans the project in this quarter. The planning can be determined six months in advance.

Why only families and not projects?
There are not so many projects set up in the LightPortal. Here you can search for these projects and donate accordingly. It’s different for families. If a donor donated the SolarKit to any family, Abiola would not be able to handle the delivery in a timely manner. Therefore, only family donations are collected, the delivery of which has already been clarified.

Why is it safe to supply all the families of the action?
Abiola donates all SolarKits to an action that has not found an external donor.

Can a donor also donate solar kits to all families for the action project or village?
Yes. In this case, he clicks on the link “from the project” and clicks on the total amount.

Why talk about the term “project with families” of project and not of village?
The grouping of families can be based on a regional proximity (e.g. village) However, it is also possible, for example, that all employees of an infirmary or an orphanage for home get a SolarKit (project). It is also possible that both a project will get a large solar system and the employees will each receive the SolarKit family. Example: One school gets the Abiola TurboCharger and the 6 teachers the SolarKit family.

How many families can Abiola donate herself?
Abiola has decided to donate 1000 families of SolarKits from her own resources. Each external donation increases the number of “lights that can be turned on”.

At Lawra Methodist School, 15 students out of a total of 70 students have no power at home. To improve learning conditions, families will receive an ABIOLA Family SolarKit.

The Lawra Methodist school was founded by the Methodist Church. The school is attended by almost 70 pupils, who are taught by seven teachers and a headteacher. Primary school grades 1 – 6. Not all of the 70 students have electricity at home. There are still houses that have no connection to the electricity. In cooperation with the teachers, a list was drawn up of who the student does not have electricity at home. With home visits we were then able to collect more information, take pictures and find backgrounds. Most of the families stay afloat with agriculture and all are very poor. The lack of electricity does not make everyday life any easier. Especially in the evening it will be difficult with cooking, learning and community in the family. It is already dark at 6 p.m. The walk to the toilet is also often difficult and often also dangerous. The snakes and scorpions can hide in the dark. Often the whole family shares a flashlight and it is improvised with the mobile phone (one mobile phone per family), torches, lanterns or similar! Students often say that they would like to learn more in the evening, but without light it is difficult. And it is more important to use the light for the work in the evening than to learn. With the Solar Family Kits, we want to enable the students to have the opportunity to learn even in the evening, also in order to make better progress in school and to have a chance for a good further education. And that families have more than just a small light source at their disposal in the evening.

21 very poor families from the village of Guidan Tawaye in the south of Niger /West Africa.

The village of Guidan Tawaye is part of the rural community of Sae Saboua and is located in the Maradi region in southern Niger, West Africa. Guidan Tawaye is located about 28 km from Maradi in a very cut-off area. There are a total of 3125 inhabitants living there, spread over 210 families. The village has no electricity and the families live in extreme poverty, faced with famines, malnutrition, diseases, etc. In the village there is a primary school, where most children go. The heads of the family are active in agriculture or livestock farming or are engaged in micro-trafficking. However, this is not enough to provide the family or the village with food all year round, so that many heads of the family are forced to travel to neighbouring countries for a certain period of time of the year in order to earn additional money there. The families are extremely poor. They are struggling with hunger, disease and unemployment. The provision of solar kits to individual families would help the children to learn in the evening (in Niger the sun sets between 6 and 7 p.m.). Until then, work is done outside. With solar light, the women could also add something to the family maintenance through sewing or other handicrafts. The mayor (village chief) of this village is called Boukari Hassane and has selected 40 particularly needy families for the supply of a solar kit. It was important to us that families from every neighborhood were given solar kits and that no neighbourhood was preferred. The first 21 families were grouped together in this group and included in the 4/2019 fundraiser.

34 families from the village of Asasekorkor in the municipality of Akuapem Nord, Ghana

Asifaw is a village in the Okere district of Ghana.

Asasekorkor is a municipality in the municipality of Akuapem North that is too far from the power grid to justify the cost of grid expansion, or too small to financially maintain and technically manage a village microgrid. Villages could develop better and faster if all sectors (housing, public services and businesses) have access to electricity.

Thirty-four particularly poor families were selected to enjoy Abiola Families SolarKit.

Note:
The donation for a family SolarKit is 35 euros.
For each family, donations can be made separately.

52 widows with orphans from the village of Buluuta in Uganda are to receive the SolarKit family.

The Buluuta project takes care of the many widows and orphans in the village of Buluuta in Uganda. Buluuta is several hours away from the nearest largest city and is difficult to reach by vehicles due to the poor road situation. The village is very close to the largest lake in Africa, Lake Victoria, from which the (very dirty) water for the village is often taken. Due to the fact that there are no power connections, the sunset often means the absolute darkness for the village. Some families use dangerous small lamps with an open flame, but most of them are without a light source. There are currently 52 families in Buluuta with a very special family structure. Children who have been orphaned and are taken in, cared for and cared for by widows. Already living on the fringes of society and living in harsh conditions, these women sacrifice themselves to give the hopeless children a home. This includes the possibility to go to school. The women long for light in the darkness and are very much looking forward to it.

Abiola Turbo Charger for Buischklinik and 21 families SolarKits for the employees.

Momo, who is only called “Stephen” by all by his surname, is the best physician of our charity Help Liberia-Kpon Ma e.V.. He runs the great Yarbayah Clinic deep in the bush of Liberia. We wish him nothing more than that he also medhimself for his further training in the evening after the clinic work in the light of an Abiola lamp. could train. In our farthest remote buschclinic, in Yarbayah, we treat up to a hundred patients on some days. This would otherwise have no access to any medical care. People come from countless villages to get help for groin fractures from heavy wear, pneumonia from cooking on the open fire or bladder infections of a lack of hygiene. We are also equipped for emergency births, because we do not want women to have to give birth in the dirt, because they no longer make it to the all-day march to the distant hospital. For this we need light! If we had electricity, we could operate a small ultrasound device that would be a huge help in the diagnosis of, for example, unclear abdominal pain. But in the entire small town, only one citizen has a tiny generator and usually no money for the gasoline. We would like to have help with that! Note Abiola: An Abiola TurboCharger 60W with a DC/AC 220V converter is provided for the Clinic. The notebook can be connected to it. With the TurboCharger, all rooms can also be illuminated. In addition, all 19 employees of the clinic receive an Abiola Family SolarKit for home use.

Abiola Turbo Charger for Agricultural Training Center in Togo

As an association of friends to Togos e.V., we started the construction of a sustainable teaching farm in Togo in summer 2018 together with our Togolese partner association ASEVEC. The West African country has enormous unused agricultural resources and at the same time imports significant amounts of food. There is also a lack of professional perspective and it is not only in the village of Kougblenou Copé that young Togoers often seek their fortune as seasonal workers in neighbouring countries. For this reason, Togolese agricultural experts provide theoretical and practical know-how on sustainable and effective cultivation methods on our teaching farm. In addition, we promote and accompany the development of local agricultural cooperatives. In the practical implementation of what has been learned, the farmers are also guided by our trained agricultural technicians. The village of Kougblenou Copé is not connected to the public electricity grid. However, the supply of solar power is essential for the expansion of training. The accounting and organisation of the teaching farm, illustrative lessons and the safety of the site are given here only as examples. By creating additional accommodation, farmers from other villages can also benefit from the educational offer.

Note:
The donation for the Abiola Turbo Charger is 350 euros.

6 families with deaf people in the small village in the eastern region of Ghana.

They only communicate with signs, they were all not in school, so the sign languages they make are their own inventions. It is very difficult to communicate with them. You can see what they’re going through in life. They have children who go to school. At the deaf school in Mampong, they have no basic equipment to learn. All the more important is a solar light in the evening for people.
