Along the winding dirt road that ascends to the Rainbow Mountains of Peru, there is a little town called Japura. Everyday, busloads of tourists pass through the sleepy community on their way to the famous tourist destination, but none stop. In a rural town without electricity, there is little to attract the attention and money of those who pass by. The families who call Japura home continue to struggle for survival.
ADRA Connections works to provide these families with the resources they need to build a sustainable future. With one solar panel system, a household has more time to work, study, cook, and play. By installing solar panels, ADRA Connections creates opportunities that last after the sun has set.
You don’t need to be an engineer or electrician to help someone like Carmen. With ADRA Connections and the ADRA Peru Solar Panel Project, you can give a small gift that will have a big impact.
“Before the solar panels, we lived in darkness. Now we can cook at night and my children can study at night. We don’t worry about light anymore.”
