Virtual SolarBuddy

About Virtual SolarBuddy

The SolarBuddy Corporate Program provides solar lights to schools, children and families living in remote areas of the world experiencing energy poverty.

In this version of the activity we will send each of your team members solar lights and instructions to their home, before hosting a virtual event on Zoom (or your preferred platform) to assemble them together. Make a difference from the comfort of your own home together as a team.

Key Facts

There are no teams in the SolarBuddy event. Instead, the whole group is working as ‘one team’ – together towards a common goal. The whole group goal is achieved when all the SolarBuddy lights have been built and your delegates learn the true meaning of the event; the bigger picture of giving back to those less fortunate.

The SolarBuddy lights come in boxes containing multiples of 50 lights. We suggest accommodating for at least one light per person.

Once all the lights have been assembled, they will need to be posted back to us at Pinnacle Team Events before they are distributed to children in need via our amazing local aid agencies who specialise in operating education programs in the countries they work in.

The countries that currently receive SolarBuddy lights include: Tanzania, Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, East Timor, Cambodia, India or South Africa.

Lights are delivered within 3 months of assembly and we will forward you through a distribution report with photos and impact statistics.
