PCH International – SOLAR PANELS bringing hope and opportunity

PCH International is an amazing organization. Last year, they approached Captivating interested in doing something that would bring an end to poverty and suffering for children and families in China – a country they wanted to support and give back to after years of doing business here. Since that time PCH has supported not just one, but several Captivating’s activities. It all started, however, with a desire to solve a simple (but out of reach) problem for a rural, mountainous based village in Sichuan. In this village, electrical supply was a problem. As a consequence, all of the village children would be studying at night using candles, kerosene and butter lamps. Health, eye-sight and decreased study hours were taking their toll on not just the children, but all members of the family.

Solar Panels were seen to be a viable solution. The aim was to help provide a sustainable, no cost electric supply solution to all 58 families in this village allowing them to save money on fuel expenses and increase consistency of the county electric supply. This project was implemented several months ago in this remote Sichuan Village, and tonight 105 children are saying, “No more butter & kerosene lamps, sore eyes, and headaches. Tonight I can study longer”. They are even enjoying the occasional TV news broadcast to keep up-to-date with things that are happening around China.

We were thrilled to have PCH International fully fund this Budu Village Solar Panel Project and help this whole village get on the road to a better future. Captivating will keep an eye on the progress of this solution to ensure it continues to meet expectations.  If so, then other villages will be considered.
