Sinovoltaics donated solar-powered lighting equipment for the Leapfrog Kindergarten which is located in Sai Kung country park in Hong Kong.
Situated in the midst of a forest, this non-profit kindergarten was in need of flexible and sustainable lighting solutions for its children playground area. Sinovoltaics decided to lend its support in the framework of it’s the company’s solar and education-focused CSR framework.

In 2019, Sinovoltaics donated funds for the purchase and installation of a small 200W solar PV system (supplied by company Mobisol) for the Primary School E. P. Nyiragikokora in rural Rwanda.
The project was organized by the Helmut Weimar Rwanda Foundation in the framework of the Jumelage Rhineland-Palatinate / Rwanda, which is a decades-long partnership framework between Rwanda and the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate that began in 1982 as a decentralised, citizen-citizen development cooperation model linking communities of Rhineland-Palatinate and Rwanda.
Situated amidst tea plantations and cattle pastures, primary school E. P. Nyiragikokora lacked access to the grid. Against the backdrop of its commitment to use solar energy to provide access to education for children, Sinovoltaics donated for this project to address this energy gap. The solar PV system, now in operation, efficiently powers six classrooms and the headmaster's room, ensuring a reliable source of electricity for lighting, computers, and chargers.
