We believe that disadvantaged communities will best flourish when they have access to affordable clean energy, free education, open and secure communication and new opportunities for work.
In addition, we believe that this prosperity can be achieved the fastest, when companies use their resources to purchase and donate our sustainable lighting solutions and Wi-Fi solutions to these communities.
This way we help to unlock new communities, help companies to accelerate the development of disadvantaged communities and can we roll out new business models, so-called: "Community Business Models", in favor of the local communities. This together is what we call our: "Community Development System".
Through our collaboration with Liter of Light we are able to bundle the light activities of Liter of Light with the wifi activities of our company, Aluna, into a community development package. Because we believe communities thrive better personally, professionally and economically by having access to affordable clean energy, free education, open communication and new employment opportunities.
Building and installing with the locol population the Com-munity Development Packa-ges, - which have been donated by companies and which consists of: solar home lanterns, solar street lights and solar wifi boxes, - in disadvantaged communities in emerging countries. This means we will train several groups of 5 woman each per project based on the Muhammed Yunus Methodology. During this training we will teach them how to build, implement, maintain and how to create an income with these solar home lanterns, solar street lights and solar wifi boxes. The latter will create a solar wifi-network.
Once the wifi network has been implemented, the community will have access to the Aluna platform through their mobile devices. Via the Aluna platform users will have access to offline apps and content, like: educational apps, healthcare apps, agriculture apps, literature content, entertainment content (video's, books and music for adults and children), local video and music sharing platform (à la YOUTUBE), Aluna Social (social network site à la Facebook), making money apps and newsfeeds.
Furthermore we will also do community engagement. Where we make the community familiar with the Aluna platform, its content and how they can benefit from it on a personal and professional level. Lastly we will continuously update the content on the platform as well publicizing continuously reports about the created social impact of the project.
We will start by selecting a community in an existing Liter of Light project, which is really in need of solar lighting and a solar wifi network. This way we ensure ourselves to create the highest social impact outcome for our stakeholders.
Once we have inspected the area where and how to place the home lanterns, street lights and wifi boxes. We are able to calculate how many lighting- and wifi-solutions they need, what the total costs will be of the project, how many groups of woman we need to train and to calculate an estimation of the social impact we will create.
To fund a project, we will sell community development packages with our lighting- and wifi-network-solutions to companies. By purchasing these packages by companies, they donate the purchased lighting solutions and/or wifi solutions to the community. By doing so they enlight a small part of the project and/or provide a wifi-network to a small part of the community. Which gives the community access to affordable clean energy, free education, open and secure communication and new opportunities for work.
