Solar powered lights built by the 2019 CIMIC Group graduates are now in the hands of children at six schools in Port Moresby, Hula and Gabagaba, Papua New Guinea.
The students will use the lights to complete their homework and travel more safely to and from school.
Each light carried a personal message from a graduate encouraging a student in their studies.
SolarBuddy distributed the lights, bringing their 2019 distribution total to 14,400 lights supplied to schools across Papua New Guinea.
Collaborative approach to innovation
EIC Activities’ hands-on social innovation workshop enabled graduates to learn how actioning a small innovative idea can solve a global issue. The EIC Activities team also took graduates through a rapid innovation process to generate ideas, assess their value and pitch prototypes to stakeholders.
