What is Empower Future Leaders?
The Empower Future Leaders (EFL) Campaign, was a passion project we founders of Helios Solutions set up during the companies incorporation. It was established to accelerate energy access to as many schools in Sierra Leone and provide a certified solar curriculum for the youth. These courses ; where they can learn the theoretical and practical principles of renewable energy, are designed to build solid foundations, and improve the industry standards that are desperately needed within the sector.
Why are we doing it?
Though we sell solar products across the country, the literacy rate, technical competency and supply of affordable solar technologies to the population has been limited. This is especially the case for woman in rural communities who are respected as educators and influential decision makers. Helios Solution has never shied away from its corporate responsibilities as suppliers and providing tools and knowledge to become employable in this growing market is how we can best give back to the country.
What we hope to offer?
With your aid In collaboration with local partners and NGOs, by the end of each year we believe we can offer:
- Every Child attending select rural schools across the country one of the following products
- One Technical School with a complete set of Practical and Theoretical Solar training kits suitable for kids and adults
- Give 5 students (3 women, 2 male) the opportunity to attend our 3 month training program which will provide them with an associate certification under the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).
To show our commitment to EFL we of Helios Solution have agreed to contribute 5% of our profits at the end of each year to the campaign, so that we can change a few hopeful students lives for the better.
