Woven into our mission is our desire to provide essential quality of life improvements and our determination to foster economic development. At The Siembra Suro Foundation, we see these two concepts converging not only at the provision of clean water, but also at the introduction of electricity.
Without electricity, activities necessary for modern economic growth (reading, communicating with people in other regions, e-commerce, etc.) become sunlight-dependent and laborious, or simply not plausible. Providing a family with enough electricity to light a space in their home at nighttime could make a gigantic difference in the educational prospects of their children, and therefore, the economic development of their community.
In conjunction with the Mexico-based solar technology firm Natsol, we provide solar electricity infrastructure to the communities that we serve. By installing panels and directing their output to be accessible to the entire community, we are able to provide electricity to homes, community centers, and schoolhouses far from the reaches of the Mexican government’s grids.
It’s our firm belief that access to clean water and electricity are two developments paramount to nurturing economic seeds. A donation of any size helps these seeds take root, setting them up to grow for decades to come.
