Chapter 2: Education
Solar Chapter decided to make Education as its second chapter after seeing the students of SDN As Manulea during their first implementation visit for Chapter 1: Water for Umutnana, a neighboring village to As Manulea village. SDN As Manulea, at the time of visit, did not have running water in the school. The successful creation of new water channels, during Solar Chapter’s first project, led our team to believe the greater good we can engender to other places outside of Umutnana. One of the team’s ideas focuses on how the abundance of water near Umutnana can be used to the village’s advantage. Our team saw that we could build more waterways to resolve the water crisis still experienced in the surrounding villages.

Every 6 Months After Implementation
During our annual site visit to Nusa Tenggara Timur, we also visit several villages that we would help in the next year.
After we get back from our site visit, we gather additional data from local governments and interviews with the local villagers and their head.
Planning & Fundraising
The headquarters team will distribute projects to the branches. During this time, each branch plan and execute their fundraising and technical strategies individually with supervision from the headquarters.
Preparation for Implementation
After we secure the funding for all projects, we prepare the logistics and itinerary for all of the project implementation visit.
We visited all of our project locations for implementation, documentation with the help from our sponsors and the villagers as well.
Our main goal as a nonprofit organization is creating sustainable solutions for all the stakeholders that we are helping. Doing so, we keep track of the village and how we are impacting their lives.
