Renewable Energy. Working to provide solar powered electricity in schools and communities and individual solar lights for students.

Grand Circle Foundation supports alternative energy sources, especially solar energy, as a way to reduce carbon emissions and dependency upon fossil fuels. When possible, schools we support add solar panels to provide an alternate source of electricity and reduce operating expenses.

In many communities, the solar lights we provide replace the need for kersosene, helping to reduce illness from the soot and smoke, and offer a chance for students to study at night, improving their chance for a better education.
